Obituary for Dolores Mettica

Dolores “Dilly” Mettica, 96, of Wallingford, passed away on October 15, 2018 at the MidState Medical Center. Born in Meriden on November 16, 1921, Dolores was the daughter of the late Domenic and Josephine (Cirillo) Mettica. She grew up in Meriden and after graduating high school was employed by New Departure Manufacturing Company through World War II and beyond. Dolores was a member of Grace Baptist Church and later First Baptist Church of Meriden. She volunteered her time at the Curtis Home. Dolores loved flowers and was an avid gardener. She enjoyed her daily walks, always stopping to chat with neighbors, many of whom became good friends. Dolores listened to classical music for hours. She enjoyed those who came to visit and would play her piano. Most importantly, Dolores was loving, caring and generous. All of her nieces, nephews, grandnieces, and grandnephews loved her like a grandmother.
Dolores is survived by her loving sister-in-law May Mettica. She is also survived by her nieces, nephews, grandnieces, grandnephews, great-grandnieces and great-grandnephews. She was predeceased by her brothers Joseph “Pep,” Salvatore “Sammy,” Albert ”Sis,” and Louis Mettica; and sisters Diana Vehs and Ellen Edwards.
