She was truly a beautiful soul who treated everyone with warmth and kindness. She loved to walk and exercise was part of her daily routine. Although Dolores struggled with mental illness throughout her life, she persevered at raising her family, and was the quintessential mom whom was admired and respected by everyone in the neighborhood and all who know her. She had an extraordinary life and her life was well lived. She will be greatly missed.
