OBITUARY

Dolly Galli

April 12, 1934July 7, 2021

Elizabeth Theresa Galli, 87 of Patterson Township, went home to be with her Savior and Lord Jesus Christ, and was reunited with her loving husband Norman, on July 7, 2021. She was born April 12, 1934 in Midland, daughter of the late Frank and Rose (Wirag) Migliore. She was a graduate of Midland High School and enjoyed being raised in the close knit community of Midland. Friends and family affectionately knew her as “Dolly”. She was a woman of faith and one of the founding members of Christian Assembly, Ohioville. Any person, whether a new convert to Christ, or new member to the Church, would receive a personal call from Dolly offering words of welcome, encouragement and a reassuring prayer. She always made herself available to others. She joined her husband Norman in baking delicious bread or cookies that they shared with friends, neighbors and their mail carrier. They also enjoyed surprising the staff at the pharmacy or doctor’s office with an assortment of goodies just to let them know they were appreciated. Dolly also devoted a number of years to babysitting for families. She was the cuddling presence for children whose parents were working. Her refrigerator was often covered with pictures of those children as they grew through stages of life. Dolly’s greatest joy in life was the relationship that she shared with her grandsons D.J., Tyler and Noah. She never missed a game or significant milestone. In her most recent years, face-timing became a wonderful way for her to stay present and up to date with her great grandsons Malachi and Simeon as she loved hearing about them and seeing pictures of them. In addition to her parents, Dolly was preceded in death by her husband: Norman Raymond Galli, December 9, 2020; her brother: Frank Migliore; and her sister: Mary “Pippie” Colaber. Dolly is survived by her three children and spouses: Kathy (Dennis) Damazo, Chippewa Township; Tracy (Alan) Saul Marchionda, Cranberry Township; Chris (Misty) Galli, Monaca; five grandchildren: D.J. (Krisland) Damazo, Phoenixville, PA; Tyler (Megan) Damazo, Cranberry Township; Noah (Emily Bramble) Damazo, Sewickley; Phillip (Emmalee Lavoie) Saul, St. Petersburg, FL; Jonathan “Mitch” (Michelle Wiltshire) Saul, Monaca; two great grandchildren: Malachi and Simeon Damazo; her brother and sister-in-law: Don and Barb Migliore, Florida. A gathering to celebrate the lives of Dolly and Norman will be held 11:00 a.m., on Saturday, July 31, 2021 at the Christian Assembly Ohioville, 6241 Tuscarawas Rd, Industry, PA 15052. Arrangements are by the SAUL-GABAUER FUNERAL HOME, INC., Rochester. On line condolences may be offered at www.saul-gabauer.com The family wishes to extend thanks to Greg Johnson and Joe D’Achille for their assistance in caring for Dolly and the staff of Good Samaritan Hospice for their kind and compassionate care. “For I am already being poured out like a drink offering, and the time for my departure is near. I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, have kept the faith. Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing.” 2 Timothy 4:6-8

After he was gone, my brother, Norman came to me in a dream.
People were clapping and singing waiting for him. He came into the room and walked over to me.
With a big smile he said, "Alice, I am so happy to be here." I knew he was in heaven.
I also knew he never liked to be alone. Dolly, he wanted you to be there with him. So, you were called.

Both Dolly & Norm were wonderful people. Randy and Norm developed a very special friendship; and Dolly was one of the first to welcome Bev when she became a Christian. Our prayers and sympathy to our dear friends - Kathy, Dennis, DJ, Tyler and Noah!
