Dolores or "Lorry" as her friends and family called her, grew up during the Great Depression. Her family moved from the city to a farm to make a go of it and ended up in Hayward, WI. Here she met the love of her life, Les, and the two were married for 67 years. From there they moved to Venice, CA where she raised three children in a small house while her husband was working for the power company. Dolores worked as a secretary for Venice Baptist Church and was very active in that church. The family then moved to Owens Valley. Dolores had a love for the desert and loved to go hiking and exploring, especially taking hikes up Mount Whitney. Eventually the family settled in Washington state and resided there until Dolores passed away. Dolores had many hobbies and enjoyed camping, being outdoors, hiking, and rock hounding. She was very fond of her beloved pets, but more than anything she loved her family. Lorry was a longtime member of Bethany Covenant Church in Mount Vernon, WA.
