Pechanga Elder Dolly Toomey Passes at 85.

Temecula resident, Elizabeth “Dolly” Toomey Ricci, died on Saturday, December 27, 2008, at the age of 85.

Dolly was always friendly to Hunters. She was born in 1923, 24 years after Paulina Hunter passed away and a decade after sworn testimony from Pechanga people that Paulina was in fact, an ORIGINAL PECHANGA person.

She is survived by her 5 children; 7 grandchildren, 12 great-grandchildren, and numerous nieces and nephews.

Visitation will be at St. Michael’s Catholic Church, Pechanga Reservation, Monday, January 5 from 8:00 - 10:00am with funeral mass at 10:00. (951) 695-8555 27135 Madison Ave., Temecula, CA 92590

OP: The Concerned Pechanga People will probably celebrate the fact that they will be able to divvy up Dolly's per capita check amongst themselves. How many of them have already done the math?

Rest in Peace, Dolly.

My condolances to Dolly's family.

She was a very nice lady and that in itself is quite a legacy.

God bless you Dolly, Pechanga is lessor for you having left us.
