Dorothy Rose Kobylarz, 71, of Hamilton, entered into God’s eternal rest on Monday, March 16, 2020 at Temple University Hospital in Philadelphia, PA surrounded by her loving family. Born in Fort Dix, NJ she resided in Hamilton for the past 27 years.

Dorothy worked with lawyers for nearly 40 years and went back to school later in life to earn her associate’s degree. She ended her legal career as a paralegal at the Mercer County Counsel's office. In addition to her preparation of complicated legal documents, she was described by her former colleagues as much more than a paralegal - she was the office mom, mentor, and confidant. She had encyclopedic and invaluable knowledge of County history and so much more.

Known as “Dot” or “Dottie” to her friends, she enjoyed taking trips with her husband, Anthony, and going to lunch, having tea, and shopping with her girlfriends. She loved cooking and spending time with her entire family (but most of all her beloved grandchildren, who called her “nonni”) and was famous for her eggplant parmigiana. Dot was a loving and devoted wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, cousin, and friend to many. She was deeply loved and will be missed by all who knew her.

Daughter of the late Jack and Carmella (Zuccarello) Burns; daughter-in-law of the late Marie Kobylarz; Dorothy is survived by her loving husband of nearly 27 years, Anthony F. Kobylarz; her three children, Melissa Darpino, Anthony Darpino III, and Anna and husband Dan Morris; three grandchildren, Catherine Darpino, Tyler and Travis Morris; her brother Robert Burns and wife Judy; brother John Burns and wife Sharon; a brother-in-law, Rodney Kobylarz and wife Bernice; a nephew, Michael Kobylarz and wife Erin; a nephew, Zac Burns; and nieces Robin Burns and Skye Burns; as well as many other family and friends.

Cremation was held privately. Funeral arrangements are under the direction of the Hamilton Brenna-Cellini Funeral Home, 2365 Whitehorse-Mercerville Rd., Hamilton, NJ 08619. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at a later date to be announced.

Dottie was an amazing woman! Whenever in her company, she would make you feel right at home. She could put a smile on face within minutes during a conversation. She was one of a kind and will be greatly missed and remembered in our hearts forever! Love, Joannie and John
