Dolly Pacific Obituary
Dolly Pacific (Durham) of Lake Havasu City, passed away peacefully at her home on April 25th, 2017. She was born in Roseville, Michigan on March 14th, 1936.
As a young girl Dolly was an excellent student, graduating from Mount Clemens High School when she was only 16 and voted Senior Class Clown for her sharp sense of humor. She earned a Bachelor of Science in Business in just three short years from California Baptist College at the age of 50.
In 1953, Dolly married Lewis Pacific in Mount Clemens, Michigan and together they moved to California, raised five children and resided most of their lives in Riverside. In 1968, the Pacific's moved to Melbourne, Australia and returned four years later to settle back in to the Riverside community.
While raising their children the couple owned and operated two fast food restaurants at two different times - one in Riverside and the other in Corona, California. After the restaurants, Dolly was recruited to manage and solicit new accounts for a growing local community bank winning multiple awards along the way.
In retirement, Dolly and Lew would go on to build a house in Lake Havasu City, Arizona. She spent her free time volunteering at an Alzheimer's facility, quilting and connecting with friends and neighbors in her beloved community, where they spent the rest of their lives.

She is survived by; children: Pam Pacific, Frank Pacific, Daniel Pacific, Tim Pacific; 10 grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren. She was 81 years old.
