Trudy Dolzine, 74, of Dover, died peacefully with her family by her side, following a period of declining health on Friday, June 8, 2018 in Maplewood at Twinsburg, Senior Living Center in Twinsburg, Ohio.

A daughter of the late Gerhard and Margaret (Bandi) Winzer, Trudy was born April 11, 1944 in Washington D.C.

Trudy graduated from Dover High School in 1962 and that same year she was named the Sugarcreek Swiss Festival Queen.

On May 25, 1963, Trudy married Jerry Dolzine at Sacred Heart Church in New Philadelphia and together they raised three children, Connie, David and Brian. The couple shared 47 years of marriage prior to Jerry’s passing on February 4, 2011.

Jerry’s professional career took them briefly to Topeka, Kansas and then to Ellet, Ohio. After living eight years in Ellet, and 19 years in Norton, Trudy and Jerry moved back to Dover in 1993. Upon their return to Dover, the couple owned and operated the Fundays Rootbeer stand for 10 years. Trudy also served as an administrative assistant in the office of Dr. Lonsdorf in Akron and as beloved receptionist for Headz and Nailz in New Philadelphia for many years.

She is survived by her daughter, Connie (Dan) Zook of Heath, Texas; her sons, David (Dorrine) Dolzine of McKinney, Texas and Brian (Amy) Dolzine of Aurora, Ohio; her grandchildren, Jackie (Ryan) Cauley, Sydnie Dolzine, Lucy Dolzine and Beatrice Dolzine; her great grandson, Carson Cauley; a sister, Joanne (Jim) Porter of Saline, Michigan; a brother, Roland (Kay Hoffman) Winzer of Hudson, Ohio; two sisters-in-law, Janice Smith of North Canton, Ohio and Cathy (Tom) Ketterer of Cold Springs, Kentucky; and a brother-in-law, Theodore (Gwyn) Dolzine of Havre de Grace, Maryland.

Trudy was preceded in death by her parents; her husband; and her father-in-law and mother-in-law, Julius and Feula Dolzine.

Visitation will be held on Friday, June 15, 2018 from 5 to 8 PM in the Geib Funeral Center at Dover and again one hour prior to the service on Saturday. A funeral service celebrating Trudy’s life will be held on Saturday, June 16, 2018 at 11 AM in the funeral home with Deacon Ron Fondriest officiating. Burial will follow in Dover Burial Park.

Connie, David, Brian, We know this is a very difficult time with the passing, of your beloved mother. We all will deeply miss Trudy. She has always amazed us with her positive outlook on life, always looking ahead to the next adventure. She never seemed to let her illness slow her down or let it stop her from living life to the fullest and doing as much as she was physically able. She was truly loved by all who knew her. Even though she is in a better place, it is always difficult for those who are left behind. We are so very sorry for your incredible loss.

I send my sincere condolences to your family during this difficult time. This scripture brought me comfort when I lost a loved one and I hope it can do the same for your family. (Psalm 34:18) May God give you comfort and the strength to endure through this difficult time.

She was a mother to me. Lit the candle for me at my wedding, help me plan it. Gave me a baby shower. I loved her just like a mother. I am glad she is with Jerry now. I will miss them both so very much! ??

So sorry to hear of Trudy's passing. I met Trudy at Suburban South Family Physician. She was a great coworker and always fun to be around. She always had funny stories to tell that were related to her or family. Last visited her in the assisted living facility in Dover and she still had her sense of humor. She was a wonderful lady and will be missed by all of those whose lives she touched. Will miss her smile. Blessings

Dear Connie, David and Brian, So sorry to hear of your mom’s passing. She was such a sweetheart . I loved talking with her when she came into the office to see Dr. Lonsdorf. She’s now with your Dad. They were a great couple. I know Dr. Al is giving her a big hug in Heaven. God Bless you all, Cathy Feltrup

Trudy was my very first friend that I made when my family first moved to Wooster Ave. in Dover, I loved her a lot and I remember the piano duets Trudy and I played when we were together. We drove Roland crazy. Gosh I really do miss her already. Just talked to her a few days ago, I recently lost my husband and it is never easy, Love to the whole family.

Trudy and Jerry were beautiful people with a lovey family. They had a good life. May they rest in peace and soar with all the other angels.

Brian, you and all your family are in our thoughts and prayers during this sad time. I am sure you know that your mom and I shared a hospital room when you and our son were born. I knew after spending time with her during those few days, we would see each other again. And we sure did. So many happy memories...our play groups when you were a toddler, me teaching your dad how to wallpaper, our many years of playing poker with our card group, lunches and many more. It was obvious how much she loved her family. When I last saw her in Twinsburg, she talked about you, David and Connie, your spouses as well as the grandkids. She shared many pictures of all of you too and was so proud to tell us what you were all doing. She never gave up though we know her quality of life continued to deteriorate. She carried on with grace and dignity after your dad's passing even though she was also very ill. I know the many fond memories you all have of her will be a comfort to you now.

Dear Connie, you and your family are in our hearts and prayers. Memories are forever. In sympathy and friendship, Sheryl and Kevin Johnston.

I worked with Trudy at Dr. Lonsdorf office for years. She was always so kind to the patients and I loved her sense of humor. She loved her family and friends and always thought of others before herself. Although she is gone she will never be forgotten. She is looking down from heaven with her beautiful smile. We will miss you Trudy. Love from your friends, Kathy and Brian Wellock
