Dorothy Nunemaker

February 17, 1928 ~ June 13, 2019 (age 91)


Dorothy Nunemaker, born February 17, 1928 in Toledo, OH to Ceclia (Fahlbush) and Ralph Duffin, passed away June 13, 2019 at Hospice of NWO. She graduated from St. Ursula Academy and attended Mary Manse College.  Dorothy married William (Bill) in November 1949 and together they raised 5 children. Her family came first, but after they were grown, she volunteered at Mercy Hospital, ushered at the Stranahan Theater and the Franciscan Center of Lourdes University. She was active at the Sylvania Senior Center, where she was in the annual musical, The Senior Follies, for several years. She was also a member of the Red Hat Society. She spent her summers at Deep Lake in the Irish Hills, where they had a cottage along with their 5 children, who also had places on the same lake. Dorothy took many cruises but the high light was her trip to Ireland. 

Dorothy is survived by her daughters, Nancy (Gerald) Iagulli and Susan Sofo (Kim Snider); sons, William (Jane), Robert and James (Carroll) Nunemaker; grandchildren, Carly Warren; Nick Iagulli; Janell Bodle; William Nunemaker; Karen Sinowetski; Nicole, Michael and Christopher Sofo; Kelly Nunemaker; and 15 great grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her husband, Bill; sisters, Rita and Margy Duffin and brothers, Richard and Gilbert Duffin. The family would like to thank Lisa, Jenny Wren, and Laura along with the staff of Hospice of NWO Toledo.
