Obituary Condolences

Dolores Dissman Dolores Dissman, age 80, of Austin, died Monday, August 25, 2009. Born Dolores Ann Louise Nimmons in Chicago, Illinois on August 28, 1928, she married Donald S. Dissman in 1950. She moved with her family in 1959 to Longview, Texas where she and her husband operated and owned The Golden Hour bookstore. In 1972, she joined her husband in Austin, Texas where, together, they originated and eventually franchised Schlotzsky's Sandwich Shops. She retired in 1981 after selling the corporation. Dolores Dissman was known to her friends as "Dolores". To her family she was known as "Mother", "Grandma", and to a select few "C.O.B.". Her greatest pleasure was her family; she was the glue that kept them together. She was an avid Chicago Cubs fan. She loved to listen to music, read, blow her money in Vegas, drink martinis, and travel the world. Her biggest "Talent" was making friends, making everyone she met feel welcome, and giving her friends and family her unconditional love and support. She will be missed by so many. Survivors include two daughters, Lisa Walker and her husband Gregory of Sugar Land, Texas, Laura Conant of Austin, Texas; and her three grandsons, Robert Conant, Matthew Conant, and Wyatt Walker. She was preceded in death by her husband, Donald S. Dissman and her parents. A special thank you to her caregivers at Seton Medical Center Intermediate Care Unit for giving her such kind attention over the last few days. A private service will be held on Saturday, August 29, 2009. Arrangements by Cook-Walden Funeral Home, (512) 454-5611.
