Obituary for Betty Jeanette Dorey Falco

Betty Jeanette (Dorey) Falco, 92, of Middletown, passed away gently from this earth surrounded by her family on Tuesday, September 19, 2017. Born in Wilmington, Delaware on February 8, 1925, she was the daughter of the late William H. and Mabel (Ellis) Dorey.

Betty had lived in Middletown after marrying her husband of fifty-six years, Corrado “Tony” Falco who predeceased her in 2001. In her younger years, Betty volunteered in the Church of the Holy Trinity office. In the last nine years, Heritage Commons has been her home where she had many devoted friends. She had a soft spot for the many canine companions she owned through the years that brought her so much joy. She also enjoyed bowling, gardening, bird watching, and family gatherings. Betty’s unselfish and loving dedication to her children and grandchildren was a constant source of strength. Her love of family will be a lasting legacy.

Betty is survived by her son, Steven Falco and his wife, Jeanie of Cromwell; two daughters, Pamela Haydon and her husband, Robert of Middletown and Gail Falco Bishel and her fiancé, Frank Tardiff of Southington; three grandchildren, Patrick, Kristen and Jennifer; two great grandsons, Haydon and Kylan; a loving niece, Debra Carle and her husband, Bill of Rockfall; her devoted sister, Patricia Wood of Newcastle, DE and many more nieces and nephews.

Besides her husband and parents, Betty was predeceased by her brother, William T. Dorey.

The family would like to say a special thank you to her caregiver Vaslyn “Tiny” Hyatt for the wonderful care she gave Betty.
