Dolores M. (Rufo) Magane

Of Waltham, passed away peacefully on Sunday evening November 22nd, 2020 at Newton-Wellesley Hospital after a period of declining health at the age of 85.

Born on July 4, 1935 in Brighton; beloved daughter of the late Donato and Blandina Rufo. Dolores was raised in Brighton and had resided in Waltham for most of her life. She was a graduate of St. Columbkille’s in Brighton.

Dolores had been employed throughout her life as a Function Sales Manager with the Best Western Hotel and the French American Club. In her retirement she loved to spend time with her children and grandchildren. She enjoyed crocheting, a good game of Yahtzee and loved to sit in the sun. Her greatest joy came from celebrating and decorating for all the holidays. Most of all Christmas and her Hallmark Christmas movies.

She is survived by her devoted and loving sister Barbara Meola; her cherished children and their spouses Robert and Maureen Magane of Dedham, Patrick Joliat of Waltham, Marian O’Toole of Waltham, Daniel and Lisa Magane of Brighton, and John and Yolanda Magane of Waltham. Her cherished grandchildren Erin Raines, Kelley O’Toole, Barbara Ojerholm, Chantel Magane, Robert Magane and Justin Magane and her great grandchildren Ireland, Jackson, Violet, Joshua, Lukas, Quintin, Kyle and Landon. In addition, she is survived by many, nieces, nephews, close friends, and extended family who loved her dearly.

She was predeceased by her dear siblings Ada Woodlee, Daniel Rufo, Robert Rufo and John Rufo.

For the safety of those we love and care about during this difficult time, and for those who wish to pay their respects to Dolores and her family can do so in accordance with CDC, Federal, State and Local guidelines in the Mary Catherine Chapel of Brasco & Sons Memorial, 773 Moody Street, Waltham, MA., on Tuesday December 1st from 4:00 – 7:00 pm. Family will gather to celebrate Dolores’ life and remember the love she shared with those she touched in a Funeral Mass at Saint Jude’s Church in Waltham on Wednesday December 2nd at 10:30 am followed by her burial at Evergreen Cemetery in Brighton.

Dolores impacted so many people during her career at the BW TLC including me as a 19 year old figuring out what I wanted to do for a career. I credit my hotel career to Dolores. Super funny, super helpful, understanding, and a true professional. RIP Mrs Magane
