Dorothea Sophie Mattarolo
Mar 7, 1927 - Jun 27, 2019
MATTAROLO, “Dot”, resident of Sacramento, CA, entered in to heaven on June 27, 2019 at the age of 92. Dot was born Dorothea Sophie to Marcellus and Zella Fischer in Oakland on March 7, 1927 and raised in Downieville, CA. In 1943, at 16 years old she was the only graduate of her senior class from Downieville High School, and later graduated from Sacramento State University, where she met Don Mattarolo. In 1956, she married Don in Germany and together they formed their family in Sacramento CA. Dot had two daughters, Julie Lee Chase and Dina Meraz.
Dot enjoyed knitting blankets for extended family and friends, bowling, and most of all attending soccer games and swim meets of her grandchildren Josh and Cheyenne.
Welcoming her into heaven are her father Marcellus, her mother Zella, who she had never met before because she had died after giving birth to her, daughter Julie Lee, and son-in-law, Albaro Meraz.
Dot will be sadly missed by her beloved husband Don, daughter Dina, grandchildren Eric and Tony (Sonya) Bedford, Ronnie (Jennifer) Chase, Joshua (Sanjana) and Cheyenne Meraz. She is also survived by 7 great-grandchildren.
