Elizabeth J. “Betty” Scolati, age 68, of Dover, formerly of New Philadelphia, died peacefully Friday, January 24, 2020.

Born in Dover, Ohio, on January 22, 1952, Betty was the third daughter of H. Joseph and Margaret Moliski Scolati.

She was one of the first students at Starlight School and was a 38-year employee of Starlight Enterprises, proudly retiring in 2010.

Betty loved life and brought joy to so many friends and friends. She particularly enjoyed shopping, jewelry, and all things Disney. Her best friend was Cinderella.

Betty enjoyed celebrating her birthday with family and friends at Tuscora Park Pavillion. She made her First Communion on May 9, 1965, at St. John’s Villa in Carrollton, Ohio, and celebrated each year on that anniversary by wearing her white veil in honor of that happy occasion.

She was a lifelong member of Sacred Heart Church in New Philadelphia.

Betty’s surviving family includes sisters, Annie (Richard) Dalpiaz of New Philadelphia and Mary Leeper of Dover; brothers, Joseph (Jean) Scolati of Baltimore, MD, and Michael Scolati of New Philadelphia; nephews, Brian Dalpiaz of Raleigh, NC, Eric (Lisa) Dalpiaz of North Canton, Jared Scolati of Kent; and niece, Haley Scolati of Charlottesville, VA; great-niece, Emery Dalpiaz and great-nephew, Ethan Dalpiaz, both of North Canton; special aunt, Rita Goth and special cousin, Joan Goth, both of New Philadelphia; and many other cousins and friends who were especially kind to Betty.

Preceding Betty in death are her parents and a nephew, Scott Dalpiaz; and her good friend and brother-in-law, Tom Leeper.

Betty’s body has been donated to The Ohio State University College of Medicine, Division of Anatomy Body Donor Program. A memorial service will be held at a later date.

Contributions may be made in memory of Betty to Starlight Enterprises, Inc., 400 East High Ave., P.O. Box 1054, New Philadelphia, Ohio 44663.

So sad to hear of Betty's passing. I enjoyed the time I spent with her when working as the nurse at SEI for many years. She was always smiling and very kind to everyone she came in contact with.

Betty is now with God who has given her a sparkling jeweled dwelling that far surpasses the sparking jewels she proudly wore here on earth! All of her jewelry has been dispersed throughout the world through Operation Christmas Child boxes for the children of the world to enjoy. Betty loved to dance so I think she and her favorite Uncle Jack Goth have had a couple of dances already. We will miss both of them as they entered their heavenly reward within days of each other and they are now looking over us. I loved my cousin and we enjoyed four trips to Disney together. She loved Prince Charming and Cinderella and the expression on her face was priceless when she saw them. Betty was one of God's simple and beautiful blessings to all who knew her.

Betty is one of those wonderful people that make me and everyone laugh. She loved life, trusted so many people, and let them be wherever they were. God is celebrating with her in heaven as she meets her parents and Uncle Jack, who crowned her the queen. May God bless all who have taken care of her.

Anyone who had the pleasure of meeting Miss Betty was blessed just by her presence. She loved to talk about everything. She also loved to dance and show off her jewelry! Wow, did she have jewelry! We will miss your smile and the love you showed to all of us, your cousins. Rest In Peace Betty and give a big hug to all the Angels in heaven who are waiting for you to become one of them.
