You can take the girl out of South Philly but you can’t take the South Philly out of the girl. Dolly was independent and cared for everyone else’s needs before she ever thought of herself. The first question you heard coming through her door was “did you eat?”. She once chased a granddaughter down the street with a plate of food, knife and fork: eating wasn‘t an option. As a nurse’s aide she worked plenty of double shifts at Kennedy Hospital in Washington Twp., but when the time came she would get “sick” and head to the casinos with her friends. It’s no coincidence that several have closed since she became sick. If she couldn’t get a fix at the casinos, rub off lottery tickets would have to suffice. Dolly may have been a little superstitious; you’d find her tossing some salt over her shoulder or seeing signs from people who passed away.
She is survived by her daughter, Deborah Quigley (William); grandchildren, Kristie Scipione, Cassidy Quigley and William Quigley III; great grandchildren; Bailey and Morgan Caven, a brother, Ray Whelan, sisters, Mary Irons and Virginia Krusha and her dog, Blizzard. She was pre deceased by her dear son, Joseph Morley.
