Dorothy M. "Dottie" DeGennaro

Dorothy DeGennaro passed away on Monday, January 22, 2018. Born in Manhattan, later moving to West Islip, NY; Davenport, FL; and living her last 5 years Wayne, she was the daughter of Henry and Elizabeth (Krug) Griebling. Dorothy was very much dedicated to her church, serving on the Vestry; the Altar Guild; as a Choir Mother; in Prayer groups; and managing the Church Thrift Store to raise funds for her parish at St Mark's Episcopal in Haines City, FL. She was a champion swimmer in high school and never lost her love for the water, spending many hours at the beach, on boats, and in later years, fishing in the Florida Keys. In her spare time, Dorothy enjoyed making crafts for her family and friends.
