Dorothy Dunne Kittrell
1927 - 2021

Dorothy Dunne Kittrell, of Naples, Fla., formerly of McMurray, died unexpectedly Tuesday, August 24, 2021.

She was born May 27, 1927, in Philadelphia.

She was predeceased by her husband, William H. Kittrell, M.D.; and her parents, Ralph S. and Elsie Dunne.

Dorothy was a graduate of Friends Central School in Narberth, and Briarcliff College, N.Y.

She raised her family for 40 plus years in McMurray. She was a member of Center Presbyterian Church, active in the League of Women Voters, an avid golfer, and member of Mt. Lebanon Country Club, which became Valley Brook Country Club.

Upon retirement and moving to Marco Island, Fla., she enjoyed tennis and the beach she loved in her youth.

After her move to Moorings Park Retirement Home, she was an acolyte and greeter at Bauer Chapel most Sundays.

For several years she participated on the Moorings Park Foundation Scholarship Committee for employees. She enjoyed a good bridge game, was the consummate hostess and never met a stranger.

She is survived by her three children, Anne Shelby (John) of Louisville, Ky., Ralph Kittrell (Sheryl) of Juno Beach, Fla., and Susan McSweeney of Bradenton, Fla.; eight grandchildren, Hunter Shelby (Jennifer), Carolyn Ross (Kyle), Andrew Shelby (Megan), Sarah Dickinson (Andrew), David Kittrell (MaryGrace), Steven Kittrell (Lindsay), Jenna Elliott (Charles), and Travis McSweeney; and 11 great-grandchildren.

A service for the celebration of her life will be at a later date. She will be interred at the United Church of Marco Island.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in her memory to the Moorings Park Foundation, 120 Moorings Park Drive, Naples, FL 34105.

The Kittrell family were our neighbors in McMurray years ago. I used to baby sit Anne and Ralph. My sympathy to the family.
