Dolores "Dorrie" Picciano Mott of Auburn passed away peacefully with the comfort of her family at Auburn Community Hospital on Tuesday, April 6, 2021. She is predeceased by her parents Ernest and Agnes Bellora Picciano, her brother Richard "Dickie" Picciano, and the love of her life Donald Fordham.
Although Dorrie had no children of her own she was a mother to so many throughout the years. She was a caregiver that dedicated her life, her home, and her love to the children she took care of. It was over a 40-year time span that she was rock solid and dependable for so many.
She had a passion for gardening, every spring her yard would be organized and planted with enough fruits and vegetables to feed an army. She loved reading, watching her beloved Red Sox's, chatting with her friends, and cooking big dinners for her family. She was feisty and her laugh was infectious.
She is survived by her nieces Jill (Ernie) Martin, Patty (John) Clemens, Cyndy Ross, nephew Peter Picciano, great nieces and nephews Amanda Oropallo, Mark J Oropallo, Courtney Kolb, Sophie Ross, Sadie Clemens, and Johnny Clemens, great great niece and nephew Parker and Carson Kolb, and her bonus family Krissy, Mike, Abby, and Seth Kane.
The family will hold a graveside service at St. Joseph's Cemetery for Dorrie on Friday, May 21st at 10am. Please visit www.Langhamfuneralhomellc.com to leave a condolence for the family.
