She was loved by not only her children but also by many nieces and nephews she touched along the way. She loved to serve, which she did by attending church regularly and was an active member of the Guadalupanas. She also loved serving at the Our Lady of Guadalupe bazaar where she assisted in making gorditas. Cooking was one of the ways she showed her love to her grandchildren, her brothers, also anyone who would sit at her table.
One of the jobs she had was as a personal care provider in which she cared for people, as this is the way she was, loving. She did this until grandchildren were her priority and joy. Dolores loved planting flowers and working outside in her yard.
As a young woman, she loved to dance. She continued to dance on occasion with her son even into her 90’s. If you know Dolores, you would know she also loved animals. She cared for many dogs and feral cats she fed which brought her joy. Her last beloved canine companion was Chiquita.
