Our treasured, Dolores Jean Rindahl (nee Krebs), age 94, passed away on June 5, 2021. Born April 22, 1927, in Chicago, to the late Earl and Floy Krebs.
Dolores moved to Wadsworth, Illinois, in the fall of 1955 and has been a parishioner of St. Patrick’s Church in Wadsworth for almost 70 years. Dolores was incredibly dedicated to her family. Her closest friends, from the ‘old’ Wadsworth neighborhood, became our family too. Every day of her life was lived for her family and dear friends. It was very important to her to keep our family close and she loved each and every one of us deeply. She coined the term “I love you 40-40!” which is the very most anyone could possibly be loved.
