Minnie D’Alie loved to watch westerns and go to the casino

Minnie D’Alie, 89, died on Monday at the home of her son Anthony and family. She was born Dominica Marie Anzalone on June 27, 1930, to Martin and Mary (Lombardo) Anzalone in Racine, WI. In 1932, she welcomed her only sibling Josephine (Lettsome).

Minnie went to Sacred Heart and then graduated from St Catherine’s High School in 1948. In 1951, she married Vincent D’Alie at Sacred Heart Church and moved to North Bergen, NJ for 11 years. Minnie retired from JI Case, where she worked for more than 28 years.

Minnie loved to bowl, shop, cook, watch Westerns, and go to the Casino with anyone who would go with her. Thursday nights at the D’Alie’s for pasta was always welcome to family, friends, and relatives. She did this for many years until she moved in with her son and daughter-in-law Anthony & Karen D’Alie, who let her stay there with their family for over 13 years.

She leaves behind her children Rose Ann (John) Lease, Anthony (Karen) D’Alie, Cecelia (Randy) Bagley and Vincent Joseph Jr (Terri) D’Alie. 14 grandchildren, 30 great-grandchildren, and one great-great-grandchild. She was preceded in death by her husband Vincent D’Alie Sr, parents, and brother in law Richard Lettsome and may other relatives and friends. She will be dearly missed by her family. In memory of Minnie, remember her for all the laughs, food, and good times.
