March 9, 1930 — March 7, 2017
Dolores Nadine Burch, 86, of Beaver Dam, passed away peacefully surrounded by her family at home Tuesday, March 7, 2017.
A celebration of her life will take place at a later date.
Dolores was born March 9, 1930, in Fond du Lac to Chester and Margaret (Bastian) Dobrinski. She was a graduate of Goodrich High School in Fond du Lac, and graduated from nursing school in 1975. On Jan. 26, 1950, Dolores was united in marriage with Ronald R. Burch in Fond du Lac.
Dolores worked for the Wisconsin Telephone Company, numerous hospitals in the Milwaukee area, and most recently at Horizon Hospice in Brown Deer as a home hospice visiting nurse until 2010. She was a huge football fan, always cheering for the Green Bay Packers. Her idol was Brett Farve— she even got to meet him a year ago. She enjoyed taking trips to the casino and Amish communities. She also enjoyed flowers and gardening. Dolores loved spending time with her family, but most importantly her love and dedication to our Lord and Savior.
She is survived by her children, Ronette (Tom) Noonan of Hubertus, Dennis (Janice) Burch of West Bend, Jackie (Roger) Freund of Beaver Dam, Jill (Gene) Gudex of Allenton and Tim (Michele) Burch of West Bend; brothers, Donald Dobrinski and Dale Dobrinski; 12 grandchildren; and 17 great-grandchildren. She is further survived by other relatives and friends.
Dolores was preceded in death by her husband, Ronald; son, Terry Burch; an infant brother; and her parents.
If desired, memorials may be forwarded to the family at N6896 Hidden Valley Drive, Beaver Dam, Wisconsin 53916.
A very special thank you to our sister Jackie Freund for taking care of our mom for more than one and a half years. Also thank you to Hillside Hospice, and to Dr. Amy Muchow for their care.
