Dolores spent her life doing the things she loved, knitting, crocheting, and traveling, reading, watching sports; the LA Dodgers and Husker Football, in particular, but what she loved most of all was spending time with her family. The family would like to thank Ellie Gibberman and Lynn Bowling, for their care and support. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to a hospice in your community.
