Sympathy to all the family and friends of Delores from her church family at Spirit of Grace. She will be remembered in prayer during worship on Sunday and at the remembrance of the saints at the All Saints' Day worship service on November 1st. May God surround you in the peace of knowing that Delores is in the loving care of our Lord.

What a trooper she was!! I worked with her for many years. She LOVED to go to the Casinos.
When she was younger she would head for Reno by herself in her motor home . She will be greatly missed. RIP Dolores my friend.
