Donelle Rosemary Fiore (maiden name - Gallina) passed away peacefully with hospice care in her home on Monday, October 18th, 2021. Dee was born in Spokane, Washington and was 80 years old. She is survived by her two daughters Julee Clark and Gayla Hocker, her two granddaughters Jemma Clark and Sela Hocker, and her brother Peter Gallina. Dee was a dedicated RN in the dermatology medical field for 30 years, adored her daughters and granddaughters and was an avid animal lover and advocate. As an active volunteer she gave her time after retirement to sewing for "Days for Girls" charities; working at the Maltby and Mill Creek Food Banks, and at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church in Bothell. Any donations on behalf of Dee can be made to PAWS animal shelters and advocacy groups. She was much loved by many.
"We have lived in the Amberleigh subdivision of Mill Creek for twenty years. Dee was our close neighbor for ten of those years. We spoke often and saw each other almost daily; but especially so since the pandemic descended on our lives and changed everything. Not being able to see our friends and families, or do our volunteer duties, or attend church, we grew closer to support each other during the difficult times of isolation. We shared a love of cats, politics, HGTV, Hallmark movies, and sports. Dee was kind, thoughtful, and always the first to help others. She is missed. R.I.P. Dee.
