Jeffries, Mary Louise Dublino passed away peacefully and surrounded by loved ones the morning of August 14, 2019, one day shy of her 81st birthday. She was born in Youngstown, Ohio on August 15, 1938, the eldest of three daughters to Ernest and Marie Dublino. Mary Louise traveled the world, engaging in careers from fashion to real estate, before settling in Orange, California to be close to her sisters. Mary Louise was well known for her feistiness, spirited conversation, love of learning, and famous pizzelles. Rest assured she has already become Saint Peter's go to advisor. She was actively involved with the Sons of Italy Renaissance Lodge, Bowers Museum and several Catholic ministries. She was an avid tennis fan and unwavering member of the Roger Federer club. Mary Louise was truly one of a kind and will be missed by many. Above all, Mary Louise cherished family. She was dedicated to staying in touch with relatives, near and far, and just this year initiated the First Annual Dublino Family Reunion for the West Coast bringing together more than 70 family members and friends. She is survived by her sister, Virgina Miller; brother in law, Donald Hodge; thirteen (13) nieces and nephews; twenty (20) great-nieces and nephews; five (5) great-great nieces and nephews; and dozens of cousins and dear friends from Temecula to Youngstown. She will be laid to rest at the Belmont Park Cemetery in Youngstown, Ohio alongside her beloved parents and sister Diana Dublino Hodge. Memorial Services will be held at Ferrara and Lee Colonial Mortuary at 351 N. Hewes Street, Orange, CA 92869 on Thursday, September 19th at 4pm.
