A long-time dedicated member of Christ United Methodist Church in Lansdale, Dolores was a former member of the United Methodist Church of Hartford.

Sweet and his wife, Donna M., of Concord, NH; two daughters, D.L. Sweet of Hermosa Beach, CA, and Donna L. Sweet of San Diego, CA; and two grandchildren, Brien Sweet of Windham, NH and Missy Sweet of South East Asia. She is also survived by her sister, Gladys Manners of Holland, PA; a loving extended family; and her family's beloved pets, Picasso and Snoopy. Another pet, Tinker was waiting to greet her across the Rainbow Bridge. Friends may greet the family 10AM Friday, August 9 at Christ United Methodist Church, 1020 S.
