Dolores Eugenia SHREEVES
February 7, 1932 – January 11, 2020
Dolores Eugenia Shreeves, a long-time resident of Collingswood NJ, and later of Surprise AZ, passed in Sun City AZ on January 11th, at the age of 87 after a brief illness. Dolores is survived by her husband, William Noble; her beloved dog Snowflake; her five children, Diane Gail, Karen Lee, William David, Cheryl Ann, and Brian Wayne, as well as ten grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren.
Dee was born in Camden, NJ, on February 7th, 1932, to Wendell Benjamin (Beeny) and Lillian Elizabeth (Tilly) L'Esperance. Setting a beautiful example, the meaning of family and friendship was paramount to her. A devoted daughter, mother, and wife, Dee passed away just shy of celebrating 67 years of marriage to Bill. She was known for being generous of spirit and for opening her heart and home, particularly to those in need. There was always room for one more at the table.
The family feels blessed for the wonderful gift bestowed by such a loving wife and mother and will be grieving privately. If you wish to further honor Dee's memory, donations can be made to the Arizona Humane Society at, www.azhumane.org.

I will never forget Mrs. Shreeves kindness and openness. Her laugh, which was phenomenal, true and hardy, with always be with be. She was always wonderful to us kids and I will always remember and appreciate her honesty and heart felt talks. She was truly a wonderful woman and I’m grateful to have known her as well as I did as a teenager. I wish her family peace and love and I thank them for sharing such an awesome person with me.

I have so many fond memories of being with Aunt Dee at so many family gatherings over the years. Aunt Dee always brightened up a room with her smile and was so easy to love. I especially enjoyed it when I was older and she'd grab me to go do dishes with her alone. Whether it was Grandmother's kitchen, Aunt Marie's kitchen, or her kitchen, we'd chat and laugh and the dishes were done in no time at all. I was so excited the day she, Uncle Bill, and the rest her family came to visit us in Virginia Beach just because they were passing by our state. She even came with me to my church to tell them I wasn't going to be able to be at the meeting that night. God bless her heart, she just kept laughing at me as I introduced her to about forty people that evening. After so many years living as a military wife it was so precious to have family around.
