Dorothy “Dottie” Gandolfi, a longtime resident of Yonkers, passed away suddenly on October 16, 2020 at the age of 77. Dottie was born in the Bronx to the late Jerome & Mae Donovan on July 12, 1943. Dottie was the beloved wife of Robert (Bobby) Gandolfi, who predeceased her on November 28, 1993. She was the loving mother of Robert Gandolfi. Dear sister of Kathleen Taylor(Barrett), the late Jerome Donovan, and the late Frances Bianco and her son John. She is also survived by her sister in law, June Donovan and her daughters Erica Donovan, Nicole Donovan, Denise Spina and sister in law, Helene Gandolfi and her daughters Doreen Gallinelli , Janice Nigro, and Christine Wilkes. She was also cherished by many countless nephews, nieces, godsons, cousins, extended family and friends. "Dottie had a big heart. She loved being with the family, shopping, gambling at the casino and much more. She loved the holidays, especially Christmas. She loved Christmas most of all and made sure it was special for everyone. She was passionate about it all year long. Trust me, all year long. She was friendly, playful, easy to talk with, silly and fun. A kind gentle soul. Most of the time always happy and cheerful. Always up for adventure, or just finding new stores. Some of the littlest things or silliest things made her happiest. She worried about everyone in the family, cared for them all. Always did her best to remember birthdays and special occasions. Kind to everyone, helpful if she could. She has left a place in the hearts of everyone who knew her. May our memories of her live on forever in our hearts and minds."
