In Loving Memory

DeLorenzo, Dorothy Marie (nee Reinagel)

April 23, 1935 - July 1, 2023

Dorothy DeLorenzo, age 88, died in Hospice care at Delmar Gardens, Meramec Valley, after a ten year struggle against Alzheimer’s Disease. She was born in St. Louis, Missouri in 1935 to Victor and Caroline (nee Ponciroli) Reinagel, and is survived by her daughter Lisa DeLorenzo, her grandchildren Gabriel and Caroline DeLorenzo Hager, her brother Richard and sister-in-law Carol Reinagel, brother-in-law and sister-in-law Paul and Mickey DeLorenzo, and an extended family of loving cousins, nephews and nieces.

She attended St. Cronin’s grade school and graduated from Rosati Kaine high school in 1952, where she played on the volleyball team. She worked for IBM for many years after high school, and married Anthony DeLorenzo in 1963. A caring and energetic mother, she was a Girl Scout leader, Room Mom, member of the PTO, and a staunch supporter of Khoury League softball. She was an active volunteer with her parish at St. Ann’s Sodality, and spent many years gardening, fishing, and traveling by motor home. She loved animals, music, reading, and sports, all passions which she enthusiastically passed along to her daughter and grandchildren. Dot was a devoted St. Louis Cardinals baseball fan. She enjoyed spending time watching games and talking with her beloved neighbors. She treasured her neighborhood in Fenton, where she lived for almost 50 years. Dot’s greatest joy later in life was her cherished grandchildren, Gabriel and Caroline.
