Dolores was a great lady and a great friend. I really enjoyed working with her...and enjoyed her cookies. Best snickerdoodles on the planet. We had some good times together. She will be missed.

I loved working with Dolores at Glasgow and being a friend as well. Kind, witty, wise. Although I haven't seen her for years, Facebook was a way to stay in touch. We remembered some funny moments and I will cherish those posts. A truly wonderful person to remember. Take care.

Dolores positively influenced the lives of many of my students while volunteering in my class at Townsend Elementary School. Dolores was a true friend, and she was an inspiration to all who had the privilege of knowing her. Sincere condolences to all of her family.
