She had a lifelong passion for gardening and was a volunteer at school and church. Dolores was also an active member of the Oak Park Coffee Club.

Mom, we will all miss you. You were such an inspiration to our family. Mom I will always cherish the memories of our times together. Growing up in house full of women you taught me how to treat a lady,even if they were my sisters. I always loved the way you paired up the children so I would always be paired with you and dad, it did have its perks. I still remember my first knuckle sandwich that I received, it was from you because I was trying to catch the needle on the sewing machine. Mom you always put yourself last so my sisters and I would never do without. You truly are a saint, and I know GOD welcome you to heaven with open arms. Now you can dance,walk do whatever you want without pain. We are taken care of dad your bubalov. I love you mom.

So very sorry for the loss of this special lady. My heart breaks for you all. She was a true testament of what a great, spiritual lady should be. The love she had for her family, husband, children, grandchildren, great children and even extended family was like no other. I know she will be missed by you all - but try to find comfort in knowing she is at peace. Keeping you in my prayers, Leslie & Dale Bolick

"Love is stronger than death even though it cant stop death from happening. But no matter how hard death tries it cant separate people from love. It cant take away our memories either. In the end life is stronger than death." Author unknown
Keeping you and your family in my prayers...
