Online Obituaries

Dorotheanne "Dot" Cronin

August 18, 1921 - January 24, 2013

Dorotheanne “Dot” Cronin (nee Allison), age 91, died suddenly Thursday, January 24, 2013 at Rush-Copley Medical Center in Aurora, IL. Dot was born in Willow Springs and attended St. Joseph’s Grade School in Summit, and Argo High School in Argo. She married her husband, Robert in 1947, and last October they celebrated their 65th Anniversary.

Dot was preceded in death by her parents Frank and Anna (Mathy) Allison, and her sister Frances Hanlon. She was fiercely proud of her four children, Kevin (Susan), Thomas, Mary Kathleen, and Patricia Ann (James Imbrogno) Cronin and her three grandchildren, Michael Robert (Kelly) Cronin, Joseph Kevin Cronin, and Kathie Clare Cronin. She was a fond aunt to many, and loyal Girlfriend of Kathy and Judy.

Dot was retired from Met-L-wood Co., Chicago and was a member of St. Joseph Catholic Church, Summit from 1956 - 2011. She was a devout Catholic, an unabashed liberal, and a chronically disappointed Cub fan.

The family would like to thank John and Ruth Nemeth of Summit for looking after Dot and Bob while they were neighbors. Thanks also to Dr. Donald Higgins of Westchester for his excellent care over the past 30 some years.
