  2. Rest In Peace, dearest Dolly. Loved remembering how you worked at Repman’s, a long ago memory. My Gramma DeMark/Ricconi was sister with your Mom Adaline. You were always so kind and loving to all of us younger DeMark cousins. I last saw you at my Mom’s (Jean Tammaro DeMark) funeral. Be with the Lord in peace.
