Her life was spent surrounded by her family and friends doing various activities, most notably anything involving her grandchildren, Dunmore sporting events, traveling abroad, and going out to dinner. She had a group of friends who have been by each other’s side since they were teenagers and their presence and support in her life was remarkable.

Grandchildren; Dr. Brittany and Kayleigh Semion, Meredith Freeman and husband Matt, Jeffrey and Jessica Plonsky, David, Daniel, Christopher, and Jonathan Rubino,  Natalie and Eric Rubino, and  Toni and Vinny Rubino. She was recently blessed with her first great-grandchild, Macy Lyn Freeman who brought her endless joy.  Dolly had a special place in her heart for the following, her sister, Dolores Calabro; nieces, Renee Perry and Elizabeth Lemoncelli; nephews, Ricky and Robby Roman; cousins, Carmel Lopatka, Mary Morasky, Jerry and Jim McAllister and families; cherished friends, Marie Bartos, Rose DeMarco, Lucy Jason, Carmella Lacertoso, Sylvia Rinaldi, Ann Parks, and Josephine Pettinato.

She was preceded in death by an infant sister, Dolores.

The family would like to extend their sincerest gratitude to the doctors and healthcare providers who cared for Dolly in her final moments, especially Dr. Linda Barrasse.

The funeral will be Wednesday from the Carlucci-Golden-DeSantis Funeral Home, Inc., 318 E. Drinker St., Dunmore with a Mass at 9:30 a.m. in St. Anthony’s Church, Smith St., Dunmore.

Dolly, Rub and the entire Rubino family were such a blessing to me and my son Patrick when I was a young, single mom in college. I will always remember how lovingly she cared for Patrick when we were at the house. Since my family was not in the area, I was grateful that Patrick had a grandma figure in his life and Dolly was perfect. My Mother recently went to heaven and I hope she and Dolly found each other to exchange Patrick stories. Nothing but love going to all the Rubino family. I'm sorry for the pain in your hearts but happy that Dolly and Rub are together again.
