A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at noon on Friday, October 4, 2019 in St. Anthony of Padua Church for Eleanor J. (Dolly) Rebraca, 87, who entered into eternal rest early Monday morning. She was born in Youngstown on August 12, 1932 to her parents, Fidele and Antonette Bavila Rossi and was a 1950 graduate of The Rayen School.
“Dolly” worked as a bank teller for 15 years at Mahoning National Bank, then for 10 years at Bank One until her retirement in 1995. She was very active in her church, devoting her time to St. Anthony Alter and Rosary Society and making pizza. She served her community as a member of the Liberty 55+ Club and Briar Hill Reunion Committee and was instrumental in starting the St. Anthony School Bowling League at Northside Lanes.
Left to cherish her memory are her three sons, Jeff Rebraca of Liberty, Ross (Shelly) Rebraca of Leesburg, VA and Jimmy Rebraca of Columbus; her grandchildren, Jillian and Jackson Rebraca; her sister, Edith Muzenic; and her brother, Fred Ross.
She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Joseph Rebraca whom she married April 14, 1956, died August 11, 2015; and two brothers, Frank and Joseph Ross.
