DOLORES MARIANA (ACOSTA) DENIS, 73 of Bonita Springs, FL passed away on September 18, 2020 after a long battle with brain cancer.

Born in Quito, Ecuador on March 26, 1947 the daughter of the late Jose Acosta and Maria America Ordonez Pena, Dolores arrived in Miami, Fl at a young age and subsequently moved to Brooklyn, NY. After marriage and having her first child she moved to New Jersey. Upon retirement she and her husband moved to Bonita Springs, Fl where they resided for 10 years.

Dolores was known by her family as “Loly” and by friends as “Mama D” but her husband Tom only called her “Love” since the day they met.

Loly first and foremost loved to be in the company of her family. She took great joy in being surrounded by the people she loved. Her grandchildren were her special angels. She loved the beach, painting, knitting and cooking. She was an avid reader and could not go to sleep without reading from her latest book.

She is survived by her husband of 44 years, Tom A. Denis, children Marc A. Denis and wife Emily of Chattanooga, TN, and Jennifer Denis of Bonita Springs, FL.

Loly is also survived by her siblings, Jose Acosta and his wife Donna of St. Louis, MO, Ana Figueroa of Ridgewood, NY, Elizabeth Diaz and her husband Tony of Valley Stream, NY and Leonor Kasten and her husband Douglas of Bonita Springs, FL.

She is also survived by her grandchildren, Matthew Narinesingh, Lucas Davis, Jacob Davis and Zoe Hope Denis.

My “Love” was a gift to us all. Her captivating smile and large brown eyes lightened hearts and brought joy to family, friends and strangers. She left the world a better place but it is not whole without her.

I remember those great Christmas and New Years party that Dolores and her husband Tommy threw. It was a time where all family members got together. We dance, we ate, we laughed and had a few drinks. Those were great moments that I will never forget. Dolores always made me feel like part of the family, no matter what I’ve done . She never turned her back on me, but made sure to pull my ears when things did not seem right. when I first met her in Staten Island, All she ever told me was to treat her sister good. Many years later, her sister and I are still together . We have 3 sons and five grandkids. I kept my promise to her that I will take care of her sister and I always will . RIP Dolores, we will never forget you.❤️❤️

I can’t single out just one memory of My Dear Sis, because she has been present in my life since I was just a young kid. I will keep all the beautiful memories in my heart forever. And all the love, big hugs and kisses that we shared even in distance. My condolences to all of her family. I will miss you Sis. I already do. And I will always keep these Beatles’ lyrics close in my heart with you: “Hey Jude, don’t make it bad, take a sad song and make it better. Remember to let her into your heart, then you can start to make it better”.
