Dorothy “Dottie” Ann Bucaro, passed away peacefully on May 25, 2022, surrounded by her family. She was a native of Chicago and graduated from Good Counsel High School in Chicago, IL, Class of 1977.
Dottie received a culinary license and worked as a Chef for a short time before making the decision to devote her life to her children as a loving stay at home Mom. She enjoyed making memories with her children and family, listening to music, watching game and food shows, shopping, eating her mother’s homemade cooking, playing computer games, solving puzzles, and talking on the phone. She was a trivia expert and a great cook.
Her children could always count on her for loving support and guidance. She would know exactly what to say in all situations. Dottie stood behind her children no matter what. Dottie’s sense of humor was infectious. She stated herself, “Wherever I go, I leave my mark.”
