Delores C. "Del" Polisoto, age 89, formerly of Fredonia, Westfield and St. Columban's on the Lake, died Thursday, February 8, 2018. She was born on September 16, 1928 in Bronx County, NY, the daughter of the late Joseph and Anna (Festa) Patricelli.

Del was an avid reader, had a special talent for sewing and knitting, and made wonderful pies. She grew and sold mums for many years. She kept fit by walking well into her seventies and could often be spotted on Route 20 on her daily energetic stroll.
