Dolores was a wonderful mother, wife, daughter, sister and friend. She had a big, beautiful and generous heart. She loved her husband and daughter, who were the center of her world. She loved her mother, brothers, nieces and nephews. Dolores was constantly thinking of her family in everything she did. She did so much for them and was always looking for ways to show how much she loved them. The things she did could range from small gestures, like sending them an inspirational message, to something larger, like throwing them a party. By far, her favorite way of showing her love was to cook for them and she was an exceptional cook. She knew what her family’s favorites were and made them for them whenever she could.
Dolores was a good mother that taught her daughter all the skills needed to prepare her for life; including her great cooking skills.
Throughout her life she loved and had a special connection with animals. There was never a time in her life when she did not have at least one pet to care for and love. Her last pet and close companion is her dog Bambino, who will miss her dearly.
Dolores was a wonderful friend to many and was always the life of the party. She brought joy to so many.
Dolores was the ultimate bargain hunter and knew how to find a deal whenever she shopped. She was very proud of this skill and would often say, “you know me, I know how to get a deal.”
