1930 - 2021
Dolores D. Heidenreich, 91, of Pullman, passed away with a peaceful smile June 22, 2021 at Sacred Heart Medical Center in Spokane, WA. Dolores was born June 2, 1930, in Los Angeles, California to Rodolfo & Mariane (Alcazar) Zuñiga. She grew up in upstate New York and later in Los Angeles, CA, where she lived with her uncle. As a teen she was adopted by her step father, Tommy Robertson, and returned to New York where she completed her schooling. As an adult Dolores made Napa, CA her home and dedicated her life to providing for and raising her children with unconditional love. Her home was always open to friends and family. She was active in Parents Without Partners and in Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays. With the Second Vatican Council she also became involved in parish Bible Studies.
Once the children were raised, she met a man with a Harley and was able to travel and see a bit of the country. In 2007 she moved to Pullman to be near her daughter. She enjoyed helping at the Duck Pond at Palouse Pride and being active at Sacred Heart Parish. She especially enjoyed Sacred Heart's Social Justice Ministry, Tuesday night rosary, and LGBTQ outreach. Dolores was both a survivor of Polio and Cancer who never took a day for granted.
