Dolores M. Assetta

November 14, 1929 — February 1, 2024

Mt. Lebanon

Dolores Marie (Zamorosky) Assetta, age 94 of Mt. Lebanon and formerly Irwin, passed away peacefully with her family by her side on Thursday, February 1, 2024. Born on November 14, 1929 in Pittsburgh, she is the daughter of the late Anthony and Mary Zamorosky. Beloved wife for 56 years to the late Dr. Ralph V. Assetta; loving mother of Mary Christine and Vincent (Marcie); cherished grandmother of Gabrielle Maria, Agnes, Anthony Radek, Mateusz and great grandmother of Ashlinn, Olivia, and Kennedy; and “honorary” mother to “second daughter” and caregiver Lynn Cherry.

Dolores was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother and friend. She loved preparing for elaborate holiday gatherings and cooking everyone’s favorite meals. She also enjoyed treating her family and friends to dinner at their favorite restaurants and buying thoughtful gifts that made all feel special. Dolores was a faithful individual who taught her family about faith in God above all things and loved to pray the Rosary with her daughter. All who knew Dolores were taken by her generous, kind nature.

Dolores was an avid Steeler fan and never missed a game. She also loved watching her favorite old time musicals and listening to Broadway CDs and knew the dialogue of every movie and lyrics to every song. She had a great sense of humor and loved spending time with her granddaughter Gabrielle as they teased each other and made each other laugh. Even though Gabrielle lives in Boston, she face timed Grandma every day to tell her something funny to bring a smile to her face. 

The family would like to extend a special thank you to Gallagher Home Health Services and Gallagher Hospice, as well as the nurses and doctors at St. Clair Hospital for their special care of Dolores and for the support they provided to her loved ones. The family would especially like to thank “second daughter” and caregiver Lynn Cherry who loved and cared for Dolores in such a special way.

Private arrangements are entrusted to WILLIAM SLATER FUNERAL SERVICE, Scott Twp. (412-563-2800).
