  1. My heart is broken to hear this news. I was a student when Dolly worked at Kennett Middle School and then a few years later she and I worked together at the American Mushroom Institute. A wonderful friendship was made and she was like my grandmother. She taught me how to cook a few of my favorite dishes, helped me with my wedding and so forth. Every Christmas I would visit her and deliver homemade Christmas cookies. Sadly the last few years I became ill and had some major life changes and did not get to visit her. I regret that so much. She was one of kind with a heart of gold. She will be so missed and I will never forget our laughs together. May she and Concetta be laughing and dancing in Heaven.

  3. To Mrs. Citino’s loved ones. I met “Dolly” when I was a student at Kennett Middle School in the late 80’s. I was an awkward kid and didn’t have a lot of friends. One day in the cafeteria, I was lucky enough to meet Dolly. We had wonderful conversations about being Italian-American and our traditions. We got so friendly that she invited my mother, father, brother, and myself to her home one evening. We had a lovely time. As with anything, life has an unfortunate way of making it hard to keep relationships going. Sadly, we lost touch but I never forgot her and thought of her often. She was a very special lady. I send my deepest sympathies to those who loved her. May she Rest In Peace.
