Katherine DaLonzo

Born: 05/07/1940 Passed:

Katherine DaLonzo, age 81, died on July 12th, 2021 surrounded by her family. She was greeted at heaven’s gates by the family that she lost before her. She was the last survivor of her parents, and siblings. Katherine is the daughter of the late Lemuel David and Vada Virginia Rife.

Kathy was born on May 7th, 1940 in Chattaroy, West Virginia. She was 16 years old when she moved to Wellsville, Ohio. That is where she found her true self. She met her soulmate, John P. DaLonzo in that town. They created a bond that will never be broken, and they have been inseparable ever since. The couple got married on August 25th, 1962. Next month, August 2021, they will be celebrating their 59th wedding anniversary. Together they have 4 children: Cassie DaLonzo, Annette DaLonzo-Holmes, Jonna Simpson, and John DaLonzo II.

Katherine always had a passion for cooking and baking. She was a wonderful wife, mother, and grandmother. She was the one who always had breakfast ready on a Sunday morning and was never afraid to try a new recipe. Kathy and John owned a restaurant together. Anyone who knows them has probably had their pizza, and probably still talks about it 30 years later. Kathy and John have a total of 9 grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren. Kathy had an undeniable love for every one of her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren; she made sure every one of them knew that before she took her last breath. Kathy is at peace now and will live on in everyone’s hearts forever.

There will be no public services, but the family will be holding a Celebration of Life in her honor. Condolences and special memories can be shared with the family at www.heritagecremationsociety.com

    You were ‘the fun aunt’ at all our family gatherings. I learned to jitterbug watching you & Uncle David at somebody’s wedding…don’t remember whose. You gave me all your old prom dresses you wore with Uncle John. I felt like a princess. You gave me a cross necklace to wear just like you had & I always wore a signet ring on my pinky finger just like you did. You were a huge influence on me. I was raised on stories of how you & my mom grew up. All nine of you & your siblings raised in love & faith. Thank you. I am who I am today in part because of your loving influence. Rest In Peace, Aunt Katie. ❤️
