SHARON, PA. – Addolorata “Dolores” Rosaria DeVito DelliBovi went to be with her heavenly Father at 9:45 a.m. on Thursday, Sept. 21, 2017, in the hospital of Sharon Regional Health System, with her daughter by her side. She was 69.

Mrs. DelliBovi was born March 4, 1948, in Bagnoli Irpino, Italy, a daughter of Alfonso DelFranco and Filomena Lenzi DeVito. She first came to the United States at age 14 to see if she liked it.

Following high school at age 18, she and her husband traveled by boat to Ellis Island and moved to Farrell, Pa. to live with her aunt, Florence Lenzi. A year later, Dolores and her husband settled in Sharon where they raised their family.

A devout Catholic, Dolores was a member of Our Lady of Fatima Church in Farrell, and read scriptures and also watched religious channels on television daily.

Dolores had a great voice and enjoyed singing. She sang on WPIC Italian Hour and filled in for a local church when they did not have someone to sing. She was also a phenomenal cook and always prepared a hot meal for her family. Her specialties were Italian sauce and cavatelli.

Dolores was the town’s seamstress model when she was a child. She traveled back to Italy several times with her husband and children to visit family. It was very important to her that she kept the Sunday family Italian tradition of eating and playing skat as well as the Italian Christmas Eve Festival.

Dolores did not want to work outside of the home and devoted her life to taking care of her family. When her children and grandchildren were young, she supported them all in the sports they played. She was the rock of the family and always positive and encouraging to others. She will be missed by many.

She leaves behind her husband, Dionigi “Danny” DelliBovi, whom she married on March 31, 1966; a daughter, Lisa Dillon of Hermitage, Pa.; three sons, William DelliBovi of Hermitage, Dion DelliBovi and his wife, Sheila, of Sharon and Daniel DelliBovi of Bethany, Colo.; six grandchildren, Devon, whom she helped raise, Abriana, Dante’, Nathan, Adriana and Massimo; two brothers, Anthony DeVito and his wife, Donna and Alfonso DeVito, all of Las Vegas; and her dog, Dino.

Dolores was preceded in death by her parents and a son-in-law, Christopher Dillon, who passed away in January of 2016.

Dolores’ family would like to thank Dr. Jay Porter III, Dr. Sharon Miller, and Dr. Christopher Enoch and their staff, for the exceptional care they rendered to her.
