Dolores Ruth Sorli, 83, of Hollywood, MD passed with peace and grace November 29, 2017. Dolores was born in Jamaica, NY on September 7, 1934 to the late Adolf Sterbenz and Anna Marie Mille Sterbenz. Dolores graduated from St. John's University while working in Manhattan. She earned her Bachelor's degrees in Business and Education and was a dedicated teacher in the Comsewogue School District in New York for over 30 years. A person of faith, Dolores enjoyed serving as a religious educator for St. Louis de Montfort Roman Catholic Church in Sound Beach, NY where she also contributed as a vocalist, organist and Eucharistic minister.
Dolores loved spending time with family and friends whether it was listening to music (in particular 50's and military bands), traveling for vacations or attending her grandchildren's music concerts. Dolores followed in her father's footsteps as an avid NY Mets fan and enjoyed watching her kids and grandkids play ball. Dolores' children and grandchildren were the pride and joy of her life. Family and friends will miss her delicious cooking, but her memory will never be forgotten.
Dolores was predeceased in death by her husband Ralph Sorli and beloved son Scott Sorli. She is survived by her sons: Joel Sorli (Jane Hall) of Hollywood, MD and Jonathan Sorli (Mariana Rengifo-Sorli) of White Plains, MD; grandchildren: Brandon Sorli, Brittany Sorli and Mia Sorli; sister: CarolAnn Ellis of Leon, NY; niece, Adrienne Kelly; nephews: Lee and Christopher Ellis; and many extended family and friends.
