Dolores May (nee DeLuca) Galoppo, age 79, of Stewartsville, NJ, passed away at home, with her beloved family at her side, on Wednesday April 13, 2022.  Dolores was born on July 25, 1942 at Margaret Hague Hospital located in Jersey City, NJ, to the late Arthur F.

Dolores was an avid Mets fan and would often be found rooting them on, even through the roughest seasons…of which there were many.  She enjoyed spending time with her sister Mary, brother-in-law Don and their friends, especially playing a good game of cards or in the bowling alley.
