(Aug. 22) at the Palmisano-Mull Funeral Home LLC, 28 Genesee St. Geneva. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 10 a.m. Tues. (Aug. 23), at St. Francis De Sales Catholic Church in Geneva. Burial will follow in St. Mary's Cemetery, Waterloo. Contributions may be directed to Catholic Charities of the Finger Lakes, 94 N. Exchange Street, Geneva, NY 14456. Attention Rhonda. Lottie was born on Sept. 4, 1924, in Waterloo and was a daughter of the late Joseph and Mary "Minnie" (Altemari) Rizzi. She started her career as a bookkeeper at Ginsberg Dress Factory and retired from the Seneca Army Depot as a travel clerk. After retirement, Lottie stayed busy working in childcare and volunteering for Finger Lakes Visiting Nurse. She was a devoted member of the Catholic Daughters and the American Legion Auxiliary. She participated in activities with the Seniors Group at the Boys and Girls Club of Geneva, Silver Sneakers at the Geneva YMCA, Geneva Women's Club and volunteered at Linden Exchange Shop in Geneva. Lottie had an unrelenting zest for life. She immensely enjoyed spending time with her family and friends, was an avid sports fan and loved watching the Yankees and Syracuse basketball. She also enjoyed local sports and attended several Hobart hockey games along with the Geneva Red Wings baseball games. She received a signed jersey from the Hobart hockey team and a signed program from all the players on the Red Wings team as a gift for her avid support. Lottie was very generous with her time and while watching sporting events at home, would knit between 30 and 40 sweaters each year for an orphanage for young boys and ship them in time for Christmas presents. Playing cards was another passion and would meet with friends two to three times a week to play. She was still kayaking in her 90s and planned an upcoming trip at 98! She loved cooking and was a local favorite in the community for her baking skills, donating her goods to several community organizations. Her children and grandchildren often received "care packages" in the mail of five or six dozen cookies. More than once, a grandchild would receive a lasagna in the mail only to be reminded by the postal service to "please have your grandmother stop shipping these" as they would thaw and leak! She is survived by her sons, David (Dorothy) Angelo of Kansas and Dennis (Teresa) Angelo of Geneva; brother, Victor Rizzi of Orlando, Florida; sisters, Renee House of Waterloo, New York and Jeanne Sittler of Bonita Springs, Florida; grandchildren, Matthew, Kimberly, Marc, Laura, Margaret and Patrick; 5 great-grandchildren and several nieces and nephews. Lottie was predeceased by her husband, Louis Angelo; siblings, Mary Capone, Sue Giovannini, Josephine Guarino, Theresa Anderson, Francis Rizzi, Annie Felice, Lee DelVecchio and Louise Craig.
