MANSFIELD: Dorothy Anne Maccioli, 75, formerly of West Hanley Road, Mansfield, died Tuesday evening November 9, 2004 in John C. Lincoln North Mountain Hospital, Phoenix, Arizona following a short illness.

She was born August 11, 1929 in Vandalia to Charles and Dora (Class) Brentlinger, was graduated from Butler High School in Vandalia in 1947, and earned her Bachelors degree from Miami University in 1951.

For several years, Dorothy taught a private Kindergarten from her home. She taught elementary education for a year at Lexington’s Western Elementary, and then from 1965 until her retirement in 1987, she taught at Mansfield City School’s Woodland Elementary.

Dorothy was a member of First Congregational Church, and had been a member of the Women’s Fellowship.

She was a member of Lexington Senior-Civic Center, Sons of Italy, Richland County Retired Teachers Association and the Ohio Retired Teachers Association.

She enjoyed the arts and crafts, most notably using acrylics to paint landscapes and florals, but when not doting on her cat Bernie, she genuinely loved to focus her energy on her grandchildren.

She is survived by three daughters and two sons-in-law Marlene and Richard Runyan and Brenda Maccioli and her special friend Shawn Veck all of Phoenix, and Marcia and Scott Plew of Mansfield; eight grandchildren Heather Runyan, Kristen Runyan, James Maccioli, Amy Maccioli, Mac Maccioli, Sarah and her husband Steve Beattie, Ashley Plew and Joseph Albert Plew; a great grandson Santana Maccioli; and her sister and brother-in-law Bonnie and the Rev. Bob Bridgers of South Hill, Virginia.

Her husband Albert Carl Maccioli, whom she married November 23, 1950, preceded her in death on May 30, 1998.

The family will receive friends on Friday, November 12, 2004 from 4-7 pm in the Lexington Avenue Snyder Funeral Home. The funeral service will be held Saturday at 1:30 pm in the chapel of the First Congregational Church, 640 Millsboro Road, with the Rev. Clifford Schutjer officiating. Burial will follow in Oak Grove Memorial Park.
