Dolores was many things in life. She was a beautician and once owned the Beauty Manor on 9th street. She was an accountant for Pepsi Cola in Torrance, and finally she retired from Pepsi while working for their bottling group in Buena Park. But her passion was her family. She was a devoted daughter and sister, a loving and selfless mother and grandmother, and a dear and loyal friend. There was nothing she wouldn't do for her family and friends. She touched many lives along her journey and they knew a person with strength to overcome life's adversity yet always remain genuine, humble, and caring. Dolores was a special person and she will be greatly missed.Services will be held in San Pedro on Friday January 17th at McNerney's Mortuary with visitation starting at 4pm followed by a memorial service at 6pm.
