She was blessed with eight great-grandchildren. Dolores had a very giving heart. She was known as one who would give everything she had to help another; she fed the homeless in her local town of Santa Paula. Convalescent nursing was the career she chose, along with private nursing homecare. She worked in this field for 40+ years, and only gave her best, and expected nothing but the same from co-workers. Dolores loved to dance, also loved Mexican music! Team Palio was formed 3 years ago to honor her courageous fight as a breast cancer survivor. After recovery she continued to feed the homeless. She also loved socializing, and eating out. We love you. You will be dearly missed—from all the “chiefs” in the family. Thank you for being a good mother, aunt, grandma, and awesome sister! Special thanks to nurses and staff at Inspiration Hospice: Chaplain Mary, Shannon, Claudette, Nikki, and Roger. Our family appreciates all you did for Dolores. There will be a private memorial at her home in Salt Lake City, Utah. A second memorial service will be held in Santa Paula, California with family and friends.
