Dorothy E. Bartolotta (Drzewiecki), age 90, of Wales, WI passed away peacefully with her loving family at her side on Tuesday, September 7, 2021 at Angels Grace Hospice in Oconomowoc.

Dorothy was born on August 20, 1931 in Milwaukee, WI to John and Theresa Drzewiecki.


Dorothy loved family. She not only taught her children how important family is but to love and respect everyone. She was a true provider of family values. Some of her favorite things were to sit on the patio to enjoy the birds, flowers, fresh air and life as it existed. She loved family gatherings especially Sunday dinners with her homemade spaghetti and meatballs, where everyone knew the door was always open. Her grandchildren and great grandchildren gave her great joy. She will truly be missed by everyone. Love you mom


Dorothy is survived by her children: Joe (Linda) Bartolotta, Jim (Sondi) Bartolotta, Jeff (Donna) Bartolotta and Jean (Tim) Gramann; her 12 grandchildren; her 22 great-grandchildren; other family and friends.


Preceding Dorothy in death are her parents; her husband, Sam; her son, John and her brother, Ron.
