Obituary for Dolores J. Bratta

Dolores Jane Bratta passed away peacefully Thursday, May 27, 2021. A loving wife, mother, and grandmother, Dolores was born September 16, 1932, in Detroit, Michigan to Anne and Henry Mitchell.

A Detroit native, Dolores graduated from McKenzie High School in 1950, and married Theophil “Ted” Bratta on May 1, 1954. They were blessed with two children, Kathleen and Michael.

Dolores had a passion for crafts: painted China, knitting, crocheting, decorated cakes, and played the organ. She also really enjoyed walks in the neighborhood with her little dog and stopping and talking with neighbors; however, her greatest love was motherhood.

She was preceded in death by her beloved husband Ted (d. April 10, 2020). She is survived by daughter Kathleen Dorando (Chris) of Schenectady, New York, and son Michael Bratta (Marsha) of Ocala, Florida. She is also survived by two grandchildren, Douglas Dorando and Nicholas Dorando.

A memorial gathering will take place at Lynch & Sons Funeral Directors, Clawson, Monday, June 7th, 5-8pm.

Dolores’ remains will be laid to rest with her husband in Great Lakes National Cemetery, Holly.
