Dolores Virginia Hobbs Obituary

Dolores Virginia Hobbs, age 82, died peacefully on Sunday, September 4, 2016. Her loving family surrounded her.

A California native, Dolores was born on October 22, 1933 in Long Beach to Herman and Lolita (Babe) Weaver. The family moved to Dinuba, California in 1936 where Dolores attended the local schools culminating in graduation from Dinuba High School in 1951. In high school, among other activities, she was involved in Rainbow Girls and these friendships lasted for the duration of her lifetime.

She is survived by her husband of 62 years, Edward E. Hobbs; son Rick W. Hobbs (Kristine) of Lodi; daughter Leslie Hobbs of Raleigh, North Carolina; sister Penny Poole (Tony) of Sanger California; two granddaughters: Aerial and Kennedy Hobbs, plus numerous cousins, nephews and nieces.

Dolores moved with Ed to Yuba City in 1966. She worked at Yuba City High School from 1974-1983 as the Health Clerk and then at the Yuba City Kidney Dialysis center from 1983-1990. She loved the outdoors, was an accomplished fly fisherwoman, and a founding member of the E.C. Powell Fly-fishing club. Over the years she was also an active member in numerous social and civic organizations including the Sutter-Buttes Garden Club and the Yuba Sutter Quilting Guild.

Early in her marriage she and her family spent many weekends and summer vacations tent camping throughout California. In 21 years of trailer life she and Ed crisscrossed the United States from Alaska to Florida and Maine to Southern California. Fly-fishing, photography and picking up interesting rocks were the main activities during these travels.
