Domenica (Dolly) DiMeo, 86, of Simsbury CT, formally of Bristol and Burlington, passed away on Saturday, April 16, 2022 at John Dempsey Hospital. She was the daughter of the late Vito and Catarina Giovinazzo. Dolly sadly leaves behind Richard J. DiMeo, her husband of 64 years and were known to all as “Dolly & Dick” since 1953.
She graduated from Bristol High School and New Britain General School of X-Ray. She worked as an X-Ray technician until midlife and then pursued a career as a real estate agent in the Farmington Valley region until her retirement. Dolly was a devout Catholic and a longtime member of St. Patrick Church in Collinsville, CT; Dolly was a deeply caring, loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. Family, extended family and friends were everything to her. She loved to entertain. All were warmly welcomed into her beautifully decorated home. She was an exceptional cook. Dolly and Dick were fortunate to travel extensively throughout her lifetime. Making people feel comfortable was truly her gift. She never met a stranger because she frequently engaged anyone in conversation. Dolly was indeed, a people person. She was gracious, generous and had a good sense of humor, and never missed a hair appointment or manicure/pedicure spa day.
In addition to her husband, Dolly leaves behind a son, David and his wife Zita of Albuquerque, NM, a daughter, Susan Coughlin and her husband Sean, of Burlington CT. Four grandchildren, Briana (Justin) Shamoun, Marissa (Vince) Giovannini, Wesley and William Coughlin, and a great grandson Geno Giovannini. She was also beloved by her nieces and nephews, extended family and many loving friends.
