Dorothy (Harvey) DeMott ended her battle with advanced lung disease on her 71 st birthday on May 12,
2023. Dorothy is predeceased by her daughter (Sara DeMott), sister (Eileen Smith), brother (Thomas
Harvey) and parents (Alberta and James Harvey). Dorothy is survived by her husband (Anthony),
daughter (Jeanette), son-in-law (Michael) and grandchildren (Aidan and Olivia).
Dorothy was born and raised in Brooklyn until her family moved to Staten Island (Midland). There, she
went to New Dorp High School and completed her certifications in Medical Billing/Coding. Dorothy
raised her family in the Rosebank section of Staten Island where she enjoyed spending time in the pool,
watching Syfy/Horror movies and shopping with her family.
Family was very important to Dorothy as she often spent time with her children and grandchildren. She
enjoyed spending hours at the beach, getting her nails done, trying new food (thanks to her
grandchildren) and spending time with friends.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks for donations to the American Lung Association and to local animal
shelters due to her love of cats. Dorothy will be viewed at Martin Hughes Funeral Home located 530
Narrows Rd S, Staten Island, NY 10304 on May 15 from 2-4pm & 5-7pm and mass will be held at St.
Joseph RC Church in Rosebank. Dorothy will be laid to rest in Moravian Cemetery with her daughter. The
family also thanks the Addeo Hospice House for their caring and respect during Dorothy’s short stay.
