Dear Frank, Lucille, DJ and family, I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your dear Mother. She and your Dad Dom were very supportive of my ministry at Bayshore Hospital. Those beautiful windows were in memory of Dom. Dolores was dedicated to serving on the fundraising of the Chapel to see that project completed. You had great, giving parents and now they are together in heaven.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

R Michael Nappi left a message on March 22, 2020:
Dear Dolores: I am very saddened over the news of your departure. You were only six years older than I am and I don’t know if you would remember me, but I dated one of the Lucarelli girls that went to Keyport High if I remember correctly her dad was a New Jersey state trooper. I do remember the farm on Highway 35. I went to St. Mary’s high school in South Amboy, but most of the time I wished I had gone to Keyport. I did get an excellent education At St. Mary’s high, but the nuns were too strict for me, so I revolted and most of the time got myself in trouble because of some of the tricks that I had pulled. God bless you and those who survive you. Ralph Michael Nappi

Albert Siano left a message on March 21, 2020:
The sorrow of this loss of my beloved aunt is deep. My heart goes out to my family, her loving and devoted children, my cousins Frank, Lucille, DJ and our entire family. Life is precious. How we live it and what we do with our lives is very important. My aunt Delores communicated that in her deeds and at time in her guiding words of wisdom and love. Between many years work, focused on doing good, with her time on Earth, for family, for employees for friends and the community. My aunt Delores was quietly demonstrative, how to take our time and our talents and what you have to give, and giving it prudently and generously. My late parents along with my Aunt Dolores and Uncle Dominic, started off working long and hard in farming in Holmdel NJ. I can remember clearly in the early spring one day when my mother and my Aunt Dolores we're up early packing asparagus into bunches at the Siano Farm Market, years before the Dearborn legend had flourished under wise, caring and hard working leadership that was always generous, thanks in many ways to the leadership my aunt Delores bestowed on her family. With Aunt Dolores' has help, My mother might have been enabled go off for chore and my Aunt Dolores would watch me at the old Siano's Farm Market in Middletown more than five decades ago. If my aunt Delores spoke with you, knew you were important, and heard, even if you were a young child. Words always very intentionally chosen and kind, and she made eye contact with children enriched with kinesthetics that couldn't be missed, you'd get a big smile and maybe a hug and some possibly good advice potentially exemplified. My aunt Delores could engage a three or four year old and make them smile and laugh, I was just one of many of them who were so lucky. She could also engage executive leadership and charities and help them achieve, sometimes taking the lead herself. You knew you were cared about, and if you were family you knew you were loved. There's no doubt it was all intentional. For me unforgettable! Our entire family to one degree or another, has been committed to philanthropy and charity. Aunt Delores led the way, demonstrating how to be kind in so many ways with what each of us has to give. So many times the site of the Dearborn Market in Holmdel has been engaged in philanthropy. The Holmdel Kiwanis of course and my Lions Club of Middletown and the New Jersey Blind Citizens Association of Leonardo are just a few of so many who have partnered in the perpetual philanthropy we have seen. Thank you Aunt Dolores for all the love you have shared with me, our family and humanity. You have taught so many amazing lessons that I'm sure will live on in all the hearts and minds you have reached. An angel has ascended into heaven. Love, Nephew Albert and wife Marilyn

Tiffany Phillips left a message on March 21, 2020:
Grateful to have called her my Godmother. What a wonderful woman, who lived a full life. She was and always will be a beautiful soul, who will be dearly missed. I remember spending all of my childhood Christmas’ and Easters with her and the family. Anytime I had a question, no matter how silly, she always had an answer. She always said, “Love you more, baby!” when it was time to leave. She was a classy woman with the warmest of hugs, and the most contagious smile that radiated the room. Family was everything to her. She never knew a stranger and was always helping the community. Everything she did was with love and pure intentions. My deepest condolences to Frank, DJ, and Lucille and the Lucarelli family. Heaven gained an angel and will always be looking over you.
