Dolores Marie Baptist Obituary

Dolores Marie Baptist was born on July 7, 1929 in Long Island, New York.
She passed at 86, on July 8, 2015 in Alamogordo, New Mexico.

She is survived by her son Ray Pirtle and her daughter Andrea Ryan. Her surviving grandchildren include: Reggie Dallaire, Wendy Dallaire, Heather LaRock, Aaron Chambers, as well as her great ­grandchildren, Hunter Chambers and Abigail Dallaire.
Dolores, known as 'Honey' to her immediate family, was self-reliant and tough as nails. In young adulthood she raised four children and managed a farm that required tilling with a huge tractor in order to help feed her children. She made her kids homemade clothes and kept an immaculate house. She still had time to volunteer as a Girl Scout den mother.

Dolores lived with a passion for life and all it had to offer. She loved being active whether it be winning foot races in her 50's, winning Ms. Senior Connecticut, or acting in theatrical productions. She was also a competitive member of the USA Dance Club and won many disco dancing contests, and enjoyed everything from ballroom to belly dancing.

After her 28 year career with United Technologies, Dolores earned her CNA. At 70, Dolores moved to the Southwest and designed and landscaped her beautiful New Mexico yard, in the process becoming a master gardener and helping to shape her Amber Skies community, with her beloved dog, Bobbie, as the mascot. She continued her love of performing arts by volunteering at the Flickinger Performing Arts Center.

She inspired all who knew her and will be remembered for a life well ­lived.

Direct Cremation will take place under the care of PCS Direct Cremation Services.
