She is preceded in death by her husband, William Foley and here parents John Eaves and Matilda Eaves (Hediger). In addition to these, Dolores’ siblings, John, Margaret, Elizabeth Haban, Charles, Matilda Chlebda, Mary Wilk, Theresa Morgan, and Joseph have gone before her.

She is survived by siblings, Rita, Dorothy Anderson and Alfred. Also survived by nephew and friend Andrew Morgan and his children Kayla and Patrick as well as many nieces, nephews, great nieces and great nephews. Dolores was a loving, caring women. Often, she would rearrange her life to help another person. Whether it was a sister in another city, a niece that needed a place to stay, an elderly neighbor that needed help, or the love of her life, she would drop everything to help them without concern for herself or what it would cost her. She helped whomever and whenever she could.

Death is not extinguishing the light: it is only putting out the lamp or candle because the dawn has come. Dolores rests in peace now while we continue the journey to the brighter dawn.
