Dolores M. Hancock, 84, a pioneer of Everett, WA peacefully passed away November 16, 2012 at 10:40 p.m. to join her Lord and Savior. She was born at Everett General Hospital to parents, George W. and Nellie C. Proud, both deceased, on October 14, 1928.
Dolores Mae (Proud) Hancock
She was preceded in death by her husband, John T.; mother-in-law, Esther Hancock; sisters, Gloria Wright and Jean Brown; sister-in-law, Betty Hancock; brother-in-law, Richard Wright; nephews, Michael Wright, George Wright; grandson, Mark S. Grimes; and numerous aunts and uncles, two of which are still living, Sue Paylor, 104 years old and Harry Proud.
She leaves behind daughter, Janet L. Prussel; children, Larry W. Grimes and Dennis Hancock; brothers-in-law, Donald Hancock, Richard Newbill, Kenneth Brown, Michael Hancock; sister-in-law, Eleanor Goins; and sister, Patricia Newbill. Dolores had four grandchildren, Brenda Kelley, Richard Young, Michael Grimes and Debbie Grimes; along with six great-grandchildren; and one great-great-granddaughter, Leah Grace Whitson.
Dolores had done many things in her lifetime, a graduate of Everett High School, she pelted mink every winter at Harmon's mink ranch for many years, Avon representative for a couple years before being promoted to manager, training in California. She also held positions as a store clerk, hostess at the Everett Elks Club and Sea Horse in Mukilteo, WA. She was also active in the neighborhood sewing club meeting once a month for a potluck. She loved being around people, enjoyed camping, traveling, bingo and her latest was playing pennies at the local casino. Family was very important to her and by now she's found all those who have passed prior to her and they are more than likely having a family reunion.
We will miss her smiling face, willingness to help others and her love of God, life and family. If anyone needed help, Dolores was usually the first person there to lend a hand and do whatever she could to make the situation better. Her final resting place is Cypress Lawn next to her husband. Anyone wanting to pay their respects may make a donation to Providence Cancer Center in Everett.
