Delores was a kind and gentle Christian. She worked hard quietly behind the scenes and our whole community of St.Mary will miss her. I will not be able to pay my respects but she will be in my prayers.

I have known Dolores since I was a young girl. She was not only my neighbor , she was my friend. There is nothing I would not do for her. She loved her church, her friends, and a special love for her dogs! She was a kind and smart beautiful woman! She will be missed greatly!

Dolores had a love for God, the church, her dogs, and children. I will always remember Dolores as my CDD teacher, the lady I loved to sit with as a child in the front pew to recite the Rosary, the strongest reader at mass, and the woman who loved my children. The church will be empty without her in the front pew twave and smile at us as we went to Communion. No one was more devoted to our church.

Delores was a good person, and her life was the Church. When you needed something, she never hesitated to help. She displayed her compassion for the faith and lived it by example. She’ll be missed.
