Dora was a resident of Springfield for most of her life and attended St. Cabrini Church. In addition to being a homemaker, she was a manager at the Howard Johnson Motor Lodge for 7 years and later worked at Catherine’s in the Yard Shopping Center for several years, where she made many friends. A loving mother, grandmother and great grandmother, Dora most enjoyed being with her family. She was a terrific homemaker and cook, and always wanted you to eat more. Although she was Tommy’s biggest fan, she always closed her eyes until his race was over. In addition, she enjoyed bus trips to casinos, attending dances at the VFW on Friday nights, and eating out with her friends every Saturday night. Dora was a gift to all who knew her.
