Dolores B. (Hayden) DeFloria, 88, of Southwest Greensburg, died Tuesday, March 20, 2018.  She was born July 13, 1929 in Jeannette, a daughter of the late Catherine and Earl Hayden.  She was preceded in death by her husband, Frank D. DeFloria, Sr.; her sister, Earla Jean McKeel; and her son-in-law, Lawrence Wallace.  She retired from Seton Hill Child Care Center in 2006.  She is survived by five children, Nancy Chistolini and husband Paul, of Washington, DC, Frank DeFloria, Jr., of Greensburg, Marsha Barnett and husband Jim of Catawba, SC, Leslie Wallace, of Greensburg and Jamie DeFloria and wife Carol, of Centennial, CO.  She is also survived by her sister, Beverly Stefl, of Latrobe.  She was called “Gram” by her seven grandchildren, Carrie Wallace, Matthew Wallace and David DeFloria, all of Greensburg, Renee Lauthers, of York; Christopher Barnett of Mayock, NC, Nicole Lauffer, of Waddell, AZ and Bryan DeFloria, of Pleasant Unity; and 10 great-grandchildren, Joshua DeFloria, Mariah Wallace, Matthew Wallace, Jr., Michael McCabe, Nolan McCabe, Cooper DeFloria and Bryce DeFloria, all of Greensburg, Riley Lauffer and Colton Lauffer, both of Waddell, AZ and Megan Barnett, of Moyock, NC.  Her many cousins and friends called her Dee or Dee Dee.  She is best described as the matriarch of her family who governed with kindness, selflessness, generosity and unconditional love.  She was always inclusive of every family member in all occasions.  She loved gardening and creating beautiful holiday wreaths.  She was a volunteer at the St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry at Our Lady of Grace Catholic Church and served homeless Vietnam veterans when in Washington, DC.  Dee was the first to bake for charitable causes at the many school occasions for grandchildren and great-grandchildren.  She always set an extra plate at the dinner table “just in case” for family or friend.  She enjoyed traveling and visited Ireland, England, Mexico, the Bahamas and New Orleans with her daughters and grandchildren.  Friends will be received from 4 to 8 PM Friday at the LEO M. BACHA FUNERAL HOME, INC., 516 Stanton Street, Greensburg.  A funeral service will begin at 11 AM Saturday in the funeral home with the Rev. Robert A. Free officiating.
