Dorothy Yammerino (Stumberger)
February 18, 1930 - March 12, 2020

Angels welcome a very wise and strong and beautiful soul to the amazing choir watching over us.

Dorothy passed over peacefully and filled with grace, after completing 90 amazing years of love, laughter and prosperity. Born in Mt Vernon, NY, and having lived in New England, South Florida and Southern California, Dottie was a striking beauty with hypnotic blue eyes. Always the life of the party, she was vivacious, mischievous, clever and kind. Strong in faith and a proud member of the Catholic Church, she was a generous and attentive friend to all. As a cosmetologist and shop owner, she and her golf professional husband, Vince, had the good fortune to work, travel and raise a successful family together. Thanks to her appetite for adventure, she leaves behind many colorful and remarkable memories from around the world.

Dot's love for her family was intoxicating and boundless; her joy continuous, her pride immense, her dedication unyielding. Her selflessness, wisdom, empathy and courage, we forever admire and deeply respect. That we can ache so deeply; that our hearts must break so hard, is proof that we know what true love is.

Dorothy is forever loved, forever cherished, forever remembered, and forever in our hearts.

She is survived by her husband Vince, her daughters Ellie (Alberto) and Linda, her brother John (Margaret), her grandchildren Ariana and Keith (Laura), and her great grandchildren Ruby and Bryce.

"I sing because I'm happy. I sing because I'm free. His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me."

"I Believe"

I believe for every drop of rain that falls
A flower grows
I believe that somewhere in the darkest night
A candle glows
I believe for everyone who goes astray, someone will come
To show the way
I believe, I believe

I believe above a storm the smallest prayer
Can still be heard
I believe that someone in the great somewhere
Hears every word
Every time I hear a newborn baby cry,
Or touch a leaf or see the sky
Then I know why,
I believe
