Dorothy D. "Dottie" Kozak

September 12, 1943 — July 22, 2023

Dorothy D. "Dottie" Kozak (nee Taraborelli ) passed away on Saturday, July 22, 2023 surrounded by her family.

Dorothy was born and raised in Southwest Philadelphia, where her good friends would call her Dottie. She enjoyed spending time with her family, and gave unconditional love to them, especially her grandchildren.

She was well liked by all whom she crossed paths with.  Her favorite past time was shopping, and she loved to go out to dinner.  She also enjoyed going out with her friends, as well.  She enjoyed listening to 50’s music and spending most days with her son in law, viewing current events. 

Dorothy is predeceased by her only sister Bonnie Taraborelli, and she is survived by her loving children Lisa Gumminger ( Joe ), son John Kozak and her grandchildren Valerie, Johnny, Joey and Aaron ; as well as her nieces and nephews and her close niece, Tina Smalley.

She was a strong woman and loved by many … and will be dearly missed, by all who knew her.

Relatives and friends are invited to gather with her family on Wednesday, August 2nd from 9:00 am. to 11:00 am., at The Donohue Funeral Home – 3300 West Chester Pike in Newtown Square, PA 19073, where a Prayer Service will follow at 11:00 am.  Inurnment will be held privately, at a later date.

Memorial contributions in lieu of flowers, are requested to the Susan G. Komen Foundation (For The Cure) – 13770 Noel Road (Suite 801889), Dallas, TX 75380, or online by visiting www.komen.org
