My mom and Dolores were girlhood friends. Their grandmothers lived near each other-I think in Stowell, Texas. Later, Marvin and Dolores served at my husband’s church when he was in high school. I knew Dolores from retreats at Lakeview. She was a sweet lady!

We were blessed to have known Delores back in 1978-1980 at Faith United Methodist Church. She was a precious lady who loved her children dearly. God be with you, Shelby and Gayla, during this time of grieving. We send our love, Art & Betty

I am so sorry to hear about your sweet momma. I so enjoyed visiting with her when I got the chance.

I knew Dolores in college....SFA. She was the asst. dorm mother and lived just across the hall from me. This was in 1956-58. The new brush rollers for our hair had just come out and we were not very good doing our own. We paid Dolores 50 cents to roll our hair. Liked her very much. I was (and am) from Beaumont and knew that she lived in the Winnie/Stowell area. So sorry for your loss...wish I could had contact with her.
