August 30, 2015

Antoinette T. “Dolly” Gaul, 97, of Lancaster passed away Sunday, August 30, 2015 at Brethren Village. Born in West Chester, PA she was the daughter of the late Luigi and Michelina (Selliti) Caccamo. She was the wife of the late Harry H. Gaul who passed away in 1985.
She was a graduate of Lancaster Catholic High School.
Dolly owned and operated her own beauty shop for over 22 years in Lancaster and later served as the beautician at the Charles F. Snyder Funeral Homes & Crematory for over 20 years.
Dolly was a faithful member of St. Anthony of Padua Catholic Church where she served on the bereavement committee, was a member of the Senior Citizens club, the Altar Rosary Society and helped with bazaars and Lenten dinners. Dolly was also a member of the American Legion Post #34 and the Sons of Italy Lodge in Philadelphia. She was a fantastic cook and hostess. You never left her house hungry!

Dear Harry, Judy and family, Dolly was truly the best of the best and we all loved her very much. She was a great friend to my mom, Jenny, and to all of us. Many wonderful memories of her kindnesses and generosity remain with me always. All the  things she did to make our life happier and better will never be forgotten. She will always be in my heart and you will all be in my thoughts these days ahead. Much love, Gray Sabatini Shirk
