Her April 5 funeral Mass took place at the Church of the Nativity, Crystal Stream, Diego Martin. Archbishop Jason Gordon presided with other clergy concelebrating.

If D’Ornellas was told time was too short for a project her response was “God is in control of time”; if it was too costly her response was “God will provide” and when told something was impossible her answer was, “nothing was impossible for God” said John Mackay, Emmanuel Community member as he delivered a eulogy. He said, “No matter what obstacle was placed on any project she would rely totally on God to overcome, of course He did.”
