Dolores was known for being the crafty one of the family. She was most happy working on her projects. There was never a project too big for her. When she had an idea, she went with it and would do it. For those who knew Dolores, they would say that her laugh was contagious. She cherished her kids but adored her grandkids more. She was always full of joy.
