Doloris was an active mother of four who was a fixture on the PTA’s of the various schools her children attended. She could be found at every school function where she was known for her ready smile and contagious laughter. She always welcomed her children’s friends into her home and there was usually an extra plate at the dinner table. She loved having those friends call her Mom instead of Mrs. Nelson. She enjoyed scrapbooking, refinishing furniture, painting and her roses.

With her loving husband Nels, they were active in bowling, softball and golf. They enjoyed entertaining, traveling in their motorhome and the company of their many friends. They were “Snowbirds” for many years and spent many winters at Rio Bend RV Resort in southern California.

She loved and was loved by many and will be missed by all.
