Dorothy ( Dottie) Filippi

August 20, 1945 — February 10, 2018

Dorothy "Dottie" Filippi, 72, of Newark, IL passed away on Saturday February 10, 2018, after a long battle with alzheimers. We are all comforted that she is now at peace. She was born on August 20, 1945 in Panama City, Florida. She moved to Illinois about the age of 18 and soon after that started her career as a beautician, and eventually owning her own beauty salon for the next 45+ years. Her strong, independent nature, laughter, love for cooking and baking (she made a mean german chocolate cake), love for dogs, gardening and most of all family, will always be remembered. She was a dedicated wife, mother, grandmother, daughter in law, sister in law, aunt and a wonderful friend to many people and will be deeply missed by all.Dottie is survived by her devoted husband, Pat Filippi, daughter Karen (Gino) Battistoni, grandchildren Elizabeth (Steven) Katz, Dean Howell, extended family Marge Filippi, Gina (Bob) Knutson, Cara (Al) Sands, Bruce Filippi, Craig Filippi. She is preceded in death by her son Thomas Lloyd Markley. A memorial gathering will take place at a later date.In honor of Dottie, memorial contributions may be made to The Alzheimer's Association National Office 255 N Michigan Ave FL-17, Chicago, IL 6060
