GIAMPETRO, DOLORES J. Age 85, died March 15, 2017 at Marymount Village. She was born February 22, 1932 in Dunbar, PA to Peter and Marie (nee Traficanti). She is preceded in death by her sisters Rose, Margaret, Mary, Carmella, Sr. Anita Marie “Adeline”, Angeline, Jean, Catherine, Florence and her nephew James. She is survived by her brother Rocco, and her nieces and nephews – Judy, Jane, Edd, Robert, Richard, and Lisa, as well as many great (and great-great) nieces and nephews. Dolores was a long time resident of Old Brooklyn, OH and Corpus Christi Parish, where she was an active member. After she graduated from Rhodes High School in 1949, she went to work for the Standard Oil Company in downtown Cleveland. Her reputation for efficiency and competence soon propelled her towards more responsibility, and in 1966 she was promoted to Manager of Stockholder Records. She retired in 1982, very well respected by all her colleagues. Dolores enjoyed music, travel and especially volunteering. She selflessly spent hours caring for the sick and elderly of her parish and for her sisters, and generously supported her family in their many endeavors. She was a strong, successful woman who did not take “no” for an answer. The family wishes to express their gratitude to the staff of Marymount’s Memory Care Unit for their love and attention to Dolores.

I worked with Dolores for many years. She was my immediate supervisor and friend. Dolores was a fine example of how we should conduct ourselves and how we should treat others. I have many good memories of the years we worked together. She spoke often of all
her family. She was proud of all and loved all.
Please accept the condolences of myself & my husband.
