Dorothy Yelovach Buccini, 82, of Remington and formerly of Mercer County, Pennsylvania, passed away peacefully at the Adler Center for Caring in Aldie on Monday, August 20, 2018, after battling illness and injury.
Dorothy Yelovach was born to Michael and Catherine Davis Yelovach in New Wilmington, Pennsylvania, on September 26, 1935.
She spoke lovingly of her simple upbringing on the farm with her parents and siblings, and was always focused on her family. She attended schools in West Middlesex and New Wilmington.
On July 7, 1962, she married Theodore Buccini; they were married for 29 years. With Ted, she lived in Meadville, Pennsylvania, North Madison, Ohio, and Lake Latonka (Mercer County), Pennsylvania. They had one daughter, Lisa. Through the years, Dorothy worked as a waitress, a childcare provider, a home-health aide for the elderly and in the Radio Grill in the Hermitage, Pennsylvania, Walmart for more than a decade.
She in 2003 moved to Virginia, where she worked as a clerk at the Farmer’s Wife in Remington and later at Messick’s Farm Market near Bealeton. She enjoyed her time at the Farmer’s Wife, with coworkers who became her dearest friends, as she was there almost the entire time the store was in operation.
When she wasn’t working, she spent time with the Remington-Bealeton Senior’s Group at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, attended church services, looked forward to visits from her family and spent time with Lisa, Chad and Blue and her friends, especially her closest friend, Beverly Olinger.
Dorothy is survived by her daughter, Lisa Davis of Remington, and many nieces, nephews, great nieces and great nephews, all of whom she loved.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Michael (1951) and Catherine Davis (1994) Yelovach; her 11 brothers and sisters: Joseph Yelovach (1944), Minnie Waneta Roman (2010), Mary Yelovach (1925), twin brothers Peter (1996) and Paul (2007) Yelovach, Margaret Orndorff (1993), Pauline Cameron (2007), Mildred Schaller (1993), Martha Allison (1995), Vivian Adele Schosser (2007) and George Yelovach (1987), and one niece, Darlene Chamberlin (2018).
Dorothy will be interred at the Oakwood Cemetery in Sharon, Pennsylvania, in a private service.
Her family and friends will gather for an informal memorial luncheon at 1:30 p.m. Sunday, September 9, at the Remington Volunteer Fire & Rescue Department, 200 East Marshall Street. Please bring a dish and a memory to share.
