Dolores M. Girone, (nee Barattucci) 88 of Ridley Twp., Swarthmore, PA, died Monday March 16, 2020 in the Wesley Enhanced Living, Media, PA.

Born in Philadelphia, PA, she was the daughter of the late Angelo and the late Florence (nee Capriotti) Barattucci.

Dolores lived in Swarthmore for the past 61 years coming from South Philadelphia, PA

She was an active member and a member of the board of Notre Dame de Lourdes Senior Citizens group. She enjoyed bowling and taking bus trips with the seniors. Dolores is predeceased by her husband Albert Girone. Prior to his death, they enjoyed taking weeklong trips with their friends, seeing shows, going out to dinner and dancing and going to the casino. After his death she continued with the seniors as well as going to the casino and out to lunch with friends until she became legally blind and could no longer drive.

Although her health was a constant issue throughout most of her adult life Dolores was always a loving and caring wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother who enjoyed spending time with her family. She attended dance recitals, band and jazz concerts, school plays, T-ball games and grandparent’s days at school. Although she was diabetic, she always had chocolate chip cookies, homemade biscotti and a candy dish filled with chocolate for whoever came to visit. You never left her house without being fed.

Dolores is survived by her daughters Donna (Gary) Ahrens and Barbara (Anthony) Cherego and her grandchildren Gregory (Cait) Ahrens and Jonathon Ahrens, Anthony (Maria) Cherego and Christina Cherego and her great granddaughters, Avery and Abby Ahrens.

She is also survived by her brother Angelo Barattucci, her sister Claire (Mike) Palladino as well as nieces, nephews and cousins

Visitation will be Tuesday March 24, 2020 from 10-10:30am at Notre Dame De Lourdes Church, Fairview Rd. & Michigan Ave., Swarthmore, PA followed by her funeral mass at 10:30 am. Interment will follow at Saints Peter & Paul Cemetery, Springfield.

Due to recent events, the family understands if you cannot or do not feel comfortable attending. Social distancing will be in effect. If you feel that you would like to stay for the mass, there will be a limit and those staying will be strategically distanced within the church. The cemetery has no restrictions at this time on attendance

A “Celebration of Life” for Dolores will be held at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, the family request memorial donations be sent to American Diabetes Assoc, 150 Monument Rd, Suite 100, Bala Cynwyd, PA 19004 or American Heart Assoc, 1617 John F. Kennedy Blvd Suite 700, Philadelphia, PA 19103
