Dolores M. "Dolly" Antonelli

May 19, 1937 — August 22, 2020

Dolores Marie Antonelli (nee: Belkowski), age 83, was born in Glassport, Pennsylvania May 19, 1937 to Walter and Ann Belkowski. She passed away peacefully in Cleveland with her family at her side August 22, 2020. Beloved wife of Robert Anthony Sr., loving mother of Robert Anthony Jr. (Amy) (of Broadview Heights) and Jason Carmen (of Columbus), cherished grandmother of Kayleigh Rose, Robert Anthony III, and Dominic Michael. Survived by brother Maj. Robert Earl Hudson (Mieko) (of Columbus). Preceded in death by grandfather Joe Drevniak, her parents and sister Dorothy Middleton.

Dolores was raised in McKeesport, Pennsylvania before moving to California and eventually to Cleveland. She joined the Marines, and was stationed at Pearl Harbor when Hawaii was established as the 50th state. After her service, she pursued degrees in Accounting and French while independently supporting herself. She met her husband of 51 years in Cleveland, Ohio. She devoted herself to raising her two children. She loved to travel with her sons and attended all their sporting events and theater productions. During the holidays, Dolores would cook elaborate meals for family and play countless board games, taking great pride in maintaining her home and she loved to entertain. Dolores was a devout Catholic, an avid bridge player, a great dancer, admirer of Broadway musicals, and an Indians baseball fan. Some of her favorite hobbies included doing puzzles, reading mystery novels, and big band era music from her youth. She also enjoyed living part of her life in New Orleans with friends and family. People affectionately called her "Dolly", and enjoyed her mischievous behavior. It was easy for her to maintain lifelong friendships because of her personable disposition, and she will be dearly missed by all.
