HEREDIA, , Dolores

89, of Tucson passed away peacefully at her home surrounded by her children on April 25, 2019. Dolores was born on December 3, 1929 to Loretta and John Sroka in Baltimore, MD. She was the oldest of ten children, four of whom predeceased her along with her beloved parents. Dolores had eight children, Mary, Noel, Bridget, Melissa, Peter, Andrew, Clara and Duff (Meredith Jr.), three stepchildren, nine grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren. After 25 years of marriage to Meredith Shaw, Dolores relocated to Tucson to begin her second life - traveling, making art, volunteering and caring for her first grandchildren. Here, she met and married (after much cajoling) Gilbert Heredia, the love of her life at the Chapel 0' Love in Las Vegas. Dolores saw life as a series of adventures, from creating art and trying new experiences to befriending everyone she ever met. Described by her sister and best friend, Jackie, as "the only person I ever met who loved me unconditionally and without judgment", Dolores was well and widely loved. The world is a smaller, duller place without her. A Celebration of Life party will be held at her home on Sunday, May 5, 2019 from 1:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. and at her son's home on the Eastern Shore of MD, on July 27, 2019. Arrangements by DESERT ROSE HEATHER MORTUARY.
