Adele “Dolly” Nociti

(May 29, 1922 to Feb 15, 2012)

Dolly’s generous spirit was always apparent. Her focus was never on herself; rather it was on those around her. Even when she fell ill, she was still calling the neighbor to see if there was anything she could do. Always gifted with a needle and thread, she made Military Field Jackets during War Time and continued sewing as a hobby throughout her life. Also during her earlier years she enjoyed social events at the Moose Lodge and Knights of Columbus with family and friends. For over 40 years, Dolly played pinochle with a special group of friends every month which was known as “The Card Club”. In her senior years she loved her bus trips to Atlantic City and her many morning visits to the Delran McDonalds where she met many friends.rnShortly after WWII a young serviceman named Joe was asked by a friend to go on a blind date. As fate would have it, this brought Dolly and Joe together. Their 65 years together were blessed by their children: Tim (Pam) of Edgewater Park and Joanne Hendrick (Jim) of Delanco, their grandchildren: Melanie Bensing (Brian), Kelly and Kevin Hendrick and their great-grandson Brian.rn Come celebrate Dolly’s 89 wonderful years (May 29, 1922-Feb. 15, 2012) Monday from 6-8 PM and Tuesday from 9-10 AM at the Sweeney Funeral Home, Riverside. Mass of Christian Burial to follow at 10:30 AM at Jesus the Good Shepherd Church (St. Peter’s Site), Riverside. Interment St. Peter’s Cemetery.
