It has been years since I have seen Delores but I can still hear that laugh. Fond memories of her staying at our house in Kimball for a short time when she first started her teaching position in Bushnell. I was just a little kid probably 10 years old. Rest In Peace cousin Delores.

My memory of Dolores is how she was so caring, kind, and her talent in making things. When she and Vernon lived in Washington, she would make us feel so welcome as we had lots of good times together visiting and laughing. They visited us a lot in Spokane and my parents in Fairfield. Dolores was there for me when I lost my Mom as she gave me a hug and we shared how our faith in God would get us through our loss. She felt my Mom was like another mother for her. She will be missed but know that we will all be together in a happier place someday.

Miss Dolores, oh my, what a beautiful and unselfish woman! Her laughter and hugs were my favorite part when we could get together. I always enjoyed her stories of living on the farm and learned a few things from those conversations. May she rest in peace.
