Dorothy Gallipeau

December 17, 1937 - June 24, 2006


Passed away Friday, June 24, 2006 at Hoag Hospital in Newport Beach after enduring her 3rd open-heart surgery in 13 years. She was born December 17, 1937 in Detroit, Michigan and is survived by her husband Lou, two sons – Shawn and Cory, daughter-in-law Kelly, four brothers – Frank Holowicki, Bernie Holowicki, Richard Holowicki, and Raymond Holowicki, and two sisters – Frances Francavilla and Mary Ann Nadolski.

Dorothy was a very giving soul who lived life with a nurturing and caring spirit and enjoyed helping others. Her passion and dedication to family and friends were her most revered qualities. Her fun-loving attitude is best typified by the motto ?Live, Laugh, and Love? which she embraced and exemplified.

Her determination and strong will were unmistakable traits and allowed her to persevere through adversity, provide hope, and keep her positive and optimistic. She enjoyed many activities, particularly reading, cooking, traveling, and watching sports. She dedicated lots of time and energy toward making her home elegant, comfortable, and welcoming and was something she took great pride in.

Funeral services will be held Saturday July 8, 2006, 10:00am at San Francisco Solano Catholic Church, Rancho Santa Margarita, CA. Burial immediately following at El Toro Memorial Park, Lake Forest, CA.
