Service: Mass of Christian Burial at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Parish, St. Sebastian Church, Monday at 10:00 a.m.
Dolores “Dolly”, born April 4, 1928 in Pittsburgh to the late James and Eva Flowers died peacefully on Thursday, May 19, 2022 following a brief illness. She was preceded in death by her husband David of 70 years, her son, Michael, and her brother Donald Flowers. Dolly was a devoted mother to her six children and treasured grandmother to her 13 grandchildren and 17 great-grandchildren who were the light of her life. She met the love of her life on a blind date and their love was an example for the family they raised together and the love they described in one word “Always”. As her family grew, so did her love for them and her friends. Dolly had friends for decades and many that were new. In the early years of her retirement, she surprised her children with beautiful water colors that she painted. She so enjoyed her bridge games until her vision took that joy away. She appreciated her friends and made everyone feel unconditionally loved. Her grandchildren were the light of her life and the joy she felt when she was with her great-grandchildren was palpable.
She is survived by her children Jennifer Rush (Dennis), David (Carol), Lisa Streb (Raymond), John (Jen), and Paul. She also leaves behind many nieces and nephews. We know that upon her arrival in heaven she will greet her Lord and her vision will be restored and she will be able to see her loved ones and friends once more, and this will bring he so much joy.
Friends received Sunday 2-6 p.m. at Devlin Funeral Home Inc., 806 Perry Hwy, North Hills. Mass of Christian Burial at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Parish, St. Sebastian Church Monday at 10:00 a.m. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations to the Spark of Hope at St Sebastian Church, 311 Siebert Rd, Pittsburgh, Pa 15237.
To the family:
Dolly was one of my favorite cousins. I was very young but remember when Dave brought her to meet my dad, his Uncle Marion. Any time they visited, laughter filled our house!
You were blessed to have such a lovely mother!
My deepest sympathies to Dolly’s family
Dolly was part of the fabric of McKnight Village and St. Sebastian Church that welcomed my family when we moved here 30 years ago. She always had a smile and kind word and I considered her a role model as a young mother. She is be remembered fondly at the McKnight Women’s Club.
My deepest sympathy to the whole Chieffe family on the loss of your mom. Dolly was the sweetest and most loving mom I ever knew. My mom passed away when i was very young and Dolly “adopted me as her “other daughter” for which I was and will be eternally grateful. I love you Dolly and will miss you. I know that you are looking down from heaven smiling and laughing. ❤️
We are sorry to learn of your loss. Please accept our condolences.
Our deepest sympathy to Jennifer, Lisa, Dave, Lisa John and Paul. Your Mother was always kind, patient and loving. Sending you prayers for comfort and peace during this time. Love, Mike and Peg
We are saddened to learn of Dolly’s passing. She was such a nice person. Our neighborhood growing up was built around love and sense of family. Dolly helped create this environment. We are comforted that our mother who recently entered Heaven will be able to embrace a neighbor! God bless your family. You will be in our prayers. Sharon and Darlene
