Dolores Castello Vallot, 89, of Beaumont, died Monday, June 10, 2019. She was the daughter of Mary Bogetto and Eugene Castello. Dolores was born on October 28, 1929, in Marquette, Michigan.

She graduated from Bishop Baraga High School in 1947 and went to St. Joseph Nursing School in Chicago, Illinois. As a Registered Nurse in 1950, she traveled to Los Angeles to work at St. Joseph Hospital. While there she met her love, Joseph A.

Dolores worked as a nurse at Hotel Dieu, St. Therese, City Hospital, Private Duty, Baptist Hospital, and retired from MASH after 41 years of nursing. She was a board member of the Association of Operating Room Nurses.

During her years of nursing, Dolores volunteered at her children’s school, St. Pius X Catholic School, as the school nurse, getting doctors to donate their time for physicals. She also volunteered her time as nurse at the seminary, St. Vincent de Paul.

After retirement, she became president of St. Pius X Ladies and remained active by cleaning linens, counting money, being a Eucharistic Minister, stuffing bulletins, tidying up the church, working at Some Other Place and printing out the Ladies’ booklet. Dolores was always willing to help friends, neighbors, and her church.

    I am so sorry to learn that your mother has passed. I have fond memories of her in surgery at Hotel Dieu when I was a student nurse from 1953 until 1956. She was an excellent teacher and mentor. I pray your faith will see you through this trying time. I know this is late,but I just learned of it.. I know prayers can see you through this after you have said your last "Goodbye" , there will be more trying times...

    I am feeling your loss and my thoughts and prayers are with all of you. Mrs. Vallot, as I called her, took me under her wings at Beaumont Medical Surgical Hospital, MASH as it was fondly known to us, and helped me in my beginning days and months as an OR nurse. She was a bold, kind, and generous woman. She was fun as well. She had a great sense of humor and a great laugh. I am so grateful that I got to visit with her at my mom's house on a visit home not so long ago. The miles had separated us but when we visited it was just like the old days. Mostly, she had a joyful heart in the Lord and she spread His love to everyone she met. My life was blessed by her. I will miss her. She will always be a fond memory of mine. May the peace of Christ be with you as you grieve.

    Mary Beth, Joe/Charlotte,, and Gina. Prayers for your loss, healing, and faith. Your parents were such excellent examples to all of you on living a Christian life. Especially your mother. She was such a strong woman and was there to help all of you grow to be successful. I loved when she visited our church and all the girls plus Joe would be together.

    She was the best cousin a person could have and although I will miss her I have no doubt she is in heaven with Joe.
