Dorothea J. "Dottie" Pompa

SCOTTSVILLE - November 19, 2019 at age 75. Dottie was born in Batavia, NY on September 2, 1944 to the late Shirley (Passmore) and Ralph Robinson. She was predeceased by her brother, Douglas R. Robinson and many aunts and uncles.

She is survived by her loving husband of 45 years, Robert J. “Bob” Pompa. They were married on May 18, 1974. She is also survived by her daughter, Lauren (Christopher) Steimer; granddaughters, Emilia Reagan and Sydney Madelyn Steimer; aunt, Beverly (John) Murnan; many cousins, nieces and nephews.

Dottie was a graduate of LeRoy Central School (1962), earned a B.A. in Anthropology from Syracuse University (1966) and a Masters in Library Science from SUNY Geneseo (1970). Starting her career at the Henrietta Public Library, Dottie went on to be the Director of the Chili Public Library for more than 25 years. During her tenure, the circulation tripled and Dottie was instrumental in getting the current Chili Library built before her retirement in 1999.

Post retirement Dottie volunteered at the Scottsville Free Library and was a member of the Wheatland Seniors Club. Dottie passionately loved her grandchildren; avidly enjoyed her crossword puzzles, was fiercely challenging at Jeopardy and was notably a dark chocolate connoisseur. Most importantly, she was an amazing mother, grandmother and wife. A Librarian until the end, she still made sure her last library book was returned on time. We will forever miss her laugh, smile and loving eyes; she was truly one of a kind.

Monday, November 25, 2019 at 10 AM her Funeral Mass will be held at St. Martin de Porres St. Mary’s Church, Scottsville. Interment, Holy Angels Cemetery, Scottsville. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Scottsville Free Library, 28 Main St., Scottsville, NY 14546. T

Dottie and Bob were wonderful neighbors, and as a library geek patron, I encountered her over the next 25 years or more. Dottie was a creative librarian and was open to alternative ways to serve her patrons. She will be missed by many but has touched many more.

My sympathy to the family. I was a longtime colleague of Dottie's . We attended many meetings together and had lunch together frequently over the years. I had great respect for her and enjoyed her company.. Ray Buchanan, Fairport Public Library Director - Retired.

Uncle Bob, Lauren, Chris and family. I'm going to miss Aunt Dottie very much, I'm so sorry that I can't make it in person, I just have so much trouble walking any more that I couldn't make it to the church or the cemetery, Linda will be there though. My condolences to the whole family.

I have been going to the Chili Library for 40 years. I remember Mrs. Pompa very well. She was always very helpful to me. She was a wonderful and great librarian. Mrs. Pompa was an extraordinary person. I give thanks for the wonderful gifts she gave to the world.

My sympathy to Bob and family. Dottie was the first person to give me a job in the library world and I am truly grateful to her. May she rest in peace.
