After marrying Pete, she used her skills as the bookkeeper of all records for the family farm for over 70 years. She was an avid sports fan and never missed a Chicago Cubs or Chicago Bears game. Dolores was thrilled to witness the Chicago Cubs winning the World Series in 2016 and enjoyed bantering with her Chicago White Sox loving grandchildren and son. She enjoyed attending her grandchildren’s and great-grandchildren’s activities. Her strength came from her devout faith in God, who has called her to her heavenly home.
