NORTH TONAWANDA — Lorraine Marie DePaolo (nee Nassiff) of North Tonawanda on February 2, 2014, after a three week fight to reverse complications from hip replacement surgery.

Beloved wife for 65 years of Dominic J. DePaolo and wonderful and beautiful mother of Donald J. DePaolo (Lynn Ingram) and David Allan (Debi) DePaolo, whom she loved more than words can say. Loving grandmother of Tara Michelle, Daniel, Alison, Evan and Aaron DePaolo. Great-grandmother of Kaden. Daughter of the late Elias and Alice (nee Monsour) Nassiff. Dear sister of Nelson (Artha) Nassiff and the late Lila (Robert) McDonald and Olivia Nassiff. Also survived by her very dear sister-in-law, close friend and travel companion, Genny DePaolo, and many nieces and nephews from both the Nassiff and DePaolo families.

She was beautiful and young at heart. She looked much younger than her age as did her mom, Alice. She was generous, caring and loving to all of her family and will be dearly missed.
