Dolores was born in Newark, NJ to the late Emma M. (nee Bayor) and Harold C. Auer.
She spent most of her life in the Riverdale and Oak Ridge sections of New Jersey.
In her better days, Dolores enjoyed solving the New York Times crossword puzzles, reading, sewing, cooking, and discussing politics. However, her love of teaching Social Studies in the West Milford Township School System, where she taught for 27 years, surpassed all the rest of her interests. Teaching was truly her calling.
As a "townie" in Jefferson, Dolores often worked at the Board of Elections, and also assisted in mailing out property tax bills.
She was a member of the Women's American Legion Auxiliary and a valued parishioner of The United Methodist Church at Newfoundland where she served on its executive board for many years.
Dolores will best be remembered for being a faithful housewife, devoted mom, and consummate educator.
Pollard was predeceased by her grandson William.
Pollard is survived by her sons Laurence F. Pollard and his wife Jean of Stockholm, NJ, Harold C. Pollard of Oregon, and her daughter Colleen B. Loller, her grandson Robert Loller and his wife Alexis of Sussex and her sisters, Carol Auer of Cedar Crest, Myrna Tarrant and her husband Jim of Falls Church, VA.
The family received visitors at the Stickle-Soltesz Funeral Home in Newfoundland. A prayer service took place at the funeral home. Dolores was interred beside her parents at Hollywood Memorial Park, Union, NJ.
Memorial donations may be made in her name to: The United Methodist Church at Newfoundland, 65 LaRue Road, PO Box 288, Newfoundland, NJ 07435.
