Dolores Aland

De Pere - Dolores Aland died June 12, 2018 after escalating health issues over the past nine months.

She was born April 14, 1930 in Green Bay to Milton and Amanda Vanden Brand, the oldest of five girls. After graduating from Green Bay West High School, she married Francis Aland, living her entire married life in West De Pere.

In the 1950s and 60s, she volunteered for the De Pere Public Health Department, helping to vaccinate all the De Pere school children. She and Fran also volunteered at St. Boniface and Our Lady of Lourdes visiting nursing home patients and many home bound parishioners.

She loved her gardens, making soup, fishing with Fran, and she read three books a week. Her rosary and prayer shawl were always in her chair. Her Friends at Nicolet Highlands and throughout De Pere were very important to her.

She is survived by daughter Sandra DeWaal (husband Arie), son John Aland (wife Lynn), Grandchildren Christopher DeWaal (wife Deana), Derek DeWaal (wife Christina), Bryan Aland (wife Heather), Nick Aland (wife Holly), Jessica Aland (Tyler Farvour), great-grandchildren Annika DeWaal and Korbyn Aland, Sisters Joan Warden, Green Bay, Donna Cegelski, Florida, Mary VandeLeest (husband Jerry), Florida, numerous nieces, nephews, and godchildren.

She was preceded in death by her parents; husband Fran, sister Janice August, and brothers-in-law Harold Warden and Robert Cegelski.

A very special thank you to the tremendous help and support over the years from her sister Joan, niece Teri Walk, niece and nephew Dave and Shirley Servais, Chris and Deana DeWaal, and all the great haircuts from Jessica Aland.

Friends may call at Our Lady of Lourdes Parish Family, 1305 Lourdes Ave, De Pere on Saturday June 16 beginning at 9:30 AM. A Mass of Christian Burial will begin at 10:30 AM.

Per Dolores' request, in lieu of flowers, memorials will go to Our Lady of Lourdes. Ryan Funeral Home, De Pere is assisting the family. Please go to to send online condolences.

The family also wishes to thank De Pere Fire and Rescue, St. Mary and St. Vincent Hospitals, Rennes Nursing Home, Artisan Assisted Living, Dr. Dzwonkowski and Dr. Falk, Unity Hospice, ADRC, and Lakeland Care; for their tender love and care, compassion, and respect given to our mother.
