Dolores Crovatto

Dolores Corine Crovatto, 87, passed away Friday, April 5, 2013, at home in Bowling Green.

She was born in Brooklyn, N.Y., on March 1, 1926, to Frank and Helen Workman.

“Dee,” as she was known to family and friends, worked in the electronics field in New York City and later, when living in Potomac, Md., managed the back room at Loehmann’s Clothing of Rockville, Md.

Dee always loved clothes, had a flair for colors and took great interest in decorating her homes. She enjoyed ball room dancing, singing, par ticularly the music of her youth and all family/holiday functions.

Due to a physical resemblance, she was likened by friends and family to Lucille Ball. She was glamorous, vivacious, witty, fun-loving, honest and loyal. Dee adored children and gave unselfishly of herself to all.

She met her husband, Robert, while the two worked in lower Manhattan at the time the World Trade Center was being built. After a short courtship, they were married on March 11, 1967. Six years later her husband’s career took them to Pitts burgh, Penn., and Washing ton, D.C. They subsequently retired to Bowling Green.

She is survived by her husband of 46 years, Robert; her daughter and son-in- law, Linda and Richard Trumble of Lake Placid, Fla.; three brothers, Arthur Lind say of Red Bank, N.J.; Robert Lindsay of Brooklyn, N.Y.; and William Lindsay of Port St. Lucie, Fla. She is also survived by a grandson, three great-grandchildren and a host of nephews and nieces. Dee was preceded in death by her son, Anthony Ciero, her father and mother as well as her stepfather, Arthur Lind say, and five sisters, Evelyn, Geraldine, Adele, Mae and Janet.
