Dolores Harriett Conklin Obituary
November 21, 1925 - August 11, 2016 Dolores Harriett Conklin, 90, passed away Thursday, August 11, 2016 at Kaiser Riverside Hospital of complications from diabetes. She was born on November 21, 1925 to parents, Earl L. and Eunice H. Sterzenbach in Chicago, Illinois. The family moved to Pasadena, California in 1929. Dolores was a graduate of Pasadena City College. She relocated to Claremont in the late 1950's. Dolores was a devout Catholic. She worked for 32 years as an executive secretary for Allstate Insurance, West Covina. After her retirement and the death of her husband and mother, Dolores married Russell F. Conklin, a retired Naval Officer and ex-fiancé from college in 1993. She spent her retirement years travelling in their motor home with her husband and two dogs across the U.S. and Canada. After Russell passed, she went to live with her daughter in Riverside. Dolores loved her career, working in the garden, travelling, reading, and most of all, her little Boston Terrier, "Bixby." She will be missed by all. Dolores is survived by her daughter, Susan Salerno and son-in-law, Paul Salerno of Riverside. The visitation will be held on Thursday, August 18, at 4:00-8:00 PM at Acheson & Graham Garden of Prayer Mortuary, Riverside.
