Joseph, Dorene "Chickie" - St. Petersburg  
Dorene "Chickie" Joseph, 81, of Inverness, Florida, passed away July 21, 2015. Chickie was a bright light with an infectious laugh with her family and friends. A native of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, she was born to Anthony and Marie Santoro. She was the oldest of three children. Chickie graduated Peabody high School in 1953. Dorene transferred to Florida in 1979 while working with the Lorillard Company as a tobacco rep. Chickie was the first female representative in the country for Lorillard. Mom liked to go out to lunch, shop til you dropped and paint. She took art classes at the Dunedin Art center and Withlacoochee Technical in Inverness. Over the years she gave away her paintings so that her friends and family are able to enjoy them for years to come. She is survived by her daughter, Laure and husband Phillip Filosa of Beverly Hills, along with her grand dogs, Rocky, Bella and Rudy; son, Mark Joseph along with his wife, Fran and grandchildren, Zachary and Jonathan; brother, Richard Santoro and wife, Lynda and nephews, Nicholas and Justin of Pinellas County. Private cremation will be handled by the Cremation Center of the Nature Coast in Crystal River. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Hospice House of Lecanto or The Humane Society of Citrus County on behalf of Dorene Joseph. Since Mom had friends and family in Pennsylvania and Florida, a remembrance of her life will be determined at a later date.
