Dorothy (Dottie) Gallucci nee Darmstadt
Age 93, passed away on Monday July 29, 2019.
She spent the last three years at Clare Oaks Retirement Community in Bartlett,IL

Dorothy was born in Chicago, Illinois on September 5, 1925 to Jacob and Anna Darmstadt, and was the youngest of six children. She is preceded in death by her parents and brothers Robert, Edward, George, Frederick and sister Anne (Gosch).

She attended St. Mary’s School and St. Patrick’s Academy in Des Plaines, and spent two years at Rosary College in Chicago. After leaving college, she was employed at Bell Telephone Company in Chicago, Illinois as a service representative.

She married Louis Gallucci at St. Mary’s church in Des Plaines, Illinois on June 5, 1948. She and Louis spent their entire married life in Des Plaines where they led a very active, productive life raising seven children; Mary (John) Karas, Peter Gallucci (deceased), Barbara Gallucci, Michael (Barbie) Gallucci, Dottie (Ron) Gierut, Louis Gallucci, daughter-in-law Rhonda LaPoint, and Joan (Bill) Ackermann. Lou and Dottie spent many years actively involved at St. Stephens Parish and School and within their close- knit neighborhood on Everett Ave. Her husband Louis died unexpectedly in 1985, shortly after their move to Elgin. She then relocated to Bartlett in 2002.

She is survived by 15 grandchildren and 5 great-grandchildren.

Dorothy enjoyed family, friends, crossword puzzles, and playing golf. She was a strong, independent woman who possessed a deep faith. Her happiest times were spent with her family, never missing the opportunity to support their various activities, and to celebrate the milestones of her children and grandchildren. When you heard the cowbell, you knew our mom was there. Her legacy will always be her fierce love of family. She will be greatly missed.
