Her house was the place to be! She loved the sunshine and was always outside working on her tan.

Later in life, she married Leroy “Red” Faber. They enjoyed many happy years together until he passed away in 1999. Dolores still had her zest for life and was very young at heart. She then met her special friend, Herb Schwictenberg. They enjoyed each other’s company for many years.
