She was preceded in death by her parents Paul A. and Lena (Ricci) DeSabato and her five brothers, Herman, Alfred, Victor, Edward, and Eugene DeSabato. She was also preceded in death by her husband, Victor J. Donatelli and is survived by her three children, Dr. Herman (Mary) Donatelli of Atlanta, GA, Maureen (Sam) Cory of Palm Beach, FL, and Dr. John (Susan) Donatelli of North Liberty, Iowa. She was the grandmother of 9 grandchildren, Wendy Vick, Dale Donatelli, Sam (Theresa) Cory, Gina (Dr. Juan) Suarez, Jill (Kevin) Calefate, Dr. Christopher Donatelli, Matthew Donatelli, Dr. Jenna (Scott) Seaman, and David (Charlotte) Donatelli. She dearly loved her 11 great-grandchildren, Ryan, Megan, Anna and Landon Vick, Sammy III and Carly Cory, Lily Suarez, Olivia and Cory Calefate, and Sophia and John Paul Seaman.

She and Victor were married in 1947 and were together for 68 years at the time of his death in 2015.
