Dolores Catoni

November 7, 1934September 23, 2020

Dolores (Pacia) Catoni, 85, passed away peacefully on September 23, 2020.

She was born in the north end section of Providence to Filippo and Filomena Pacia, and enjoyed over 60 years of marriage with her late husband, Fernando Catoni.

Dolores was the matriarch of her family, which included many friends. She became the center of every room with her ability to blend candor and tenderness, and will be remembered for the laughter this provided. Above all, Dolores lived a life of servitude. Even in old age and poor health, she was only concerned for others and tended to everyone.

Dolores leaves behind a loving son, Dante Catoni; grandsons Justin Catoni and Dante M. Catoni and his wife Zulmira; great-grandchildren Chrissa and Chloe; and daughter-in-law Mary Catoni. She is predeceased by sisters Rose Mariconi and Anna Cimini; and brothers Leonardo Pace, Costantino Pacia, and Philip Pacia. Visitation and funeral services will be private.

I am Dolores's nephew. We used to call her Auntie Do Do. She was my baby sitter in the late 1940's. We last saw her in 2009 and had a great time. My mother Rose and her were very close.

I am her niece. She was my mother Rose Moriconi sister..I remember fondly of her visit to my home in Texas. She came to visit. She did full a room with laughter. She shared memories of her and my mom growing up. My heart goes out to Dante and family. May you RIP auntie. You are now back home. God bless.

So sorry to hear of Dolores' passing. She and Nando were great friends of my mother and father in-laws'. Dolores will always be remembered as a Loving and Caring Person, always having a smile on her face and a kind word for all. She and Nando were also very funny, making jokes or having a funny story to tell. There are so many friends gone now, we hope they're all sitting around the big table playing cards together.
