ROSSETTI, Dolores (Lastoria) - It is with a heavy heart and deep sorrow that we announce the passing of Dolores on Tuesday, December 18, 2012, in her 80th year. Dolores was the beloved wife of the late Pasquale, loving mother to Luisa and Dan Brodsky and Mary and Joe Longarini, and cherished Nonna to Michael, Zachary and Jessica. Dolores was a beautiful soul who touched all those who knew her. She loved her family and friends, and lived her life and especially the last 8 years of illness, with grace, courage and a sense of humour. Dolores enjoyed her afternoon tea with the ladies, "31" on Saturday nights and her weekly salon visits - her hair was always beautiful. Predeceased by her brother Joe, she will be missed by siblings Nucia (late Tony), Giuseppina (Frank), Pat (Arlene) and Mary (late Gino), and by her many nieces, nephews and friends. The family is grateful for the care Dolores received from Dr. Cheung and the Odette Cancer Centre, Sunnybrook Hospital, Dr. Berall and The Humber River Hospital Nephrology Clinic, and Dr. Leith; whom all became family and were treated to her biscotti. The family will receive friends at the Bernardo Funeral Home, 2960 Dufferin St. on Friday, December 21, 2012 from 2 - 4 and 6 - 9 p.m. The Funeral Mass will be held on Saturday, December 22, 2012 at St. Charles Borromeo Church, 811 Lawrence Ave. W.
