Delores J. Dodge (nee Dotson), 90, died August 26, 2012, in her home in Concord, CA. She was getting ready for church and looking forward with joy to worshipping the Lord, and when Jesus took her up into Glory that morning to be with Him forever, she got to do just that. She was born in Neodesha, Kansas, on November 21, 1921. After her mother died, Delores learned at a young age how to cook on a small budget and manage a household with her two sisters while her father worked. She had many sweet stories of how they took care of one another in those days. Later, Delores married and had two daughters and a son. She and her late husband Robert "Jack" enjoyed 60 years of marriage together in California raising their children. She was a marvelous wife, mother, and homemaker. Delores was a woman full of love, joy, and dedication. Her greatest delight was her family, and she loved nothing better than looking at photos of her 3 children, 3 grandchildren, and 4 great grandchildren. A true lady, known for her mild temper and sweet disposition, Delores also had an endearing quick wit and a humorous twinkle in her eyes even into her older age. In addition to her own family, she loved (and was dearly loved by) her faithful and supportive church family. Delores is survived by son Robert Dodge III (and wife Robin), daughter Judy, grandson Robert Dodge IV (and wife Rachel), granddaughter Deanna Romero (and husband Roger), grandson Joseph Forsythe, great grandchildren Kyle and Emily Romero and Elizabeth and Robert "Jack" Dodge V, and sisters Patty Dotson Smith and Betty Dotson Clayton. She was preceded in death by her brother Joe Dotson and sister Wilma Ford, and also her beloved daughter, Becky. Her family was richly blessed by Delores ("Mama" and "Granny"), and they anxiously await the day when they will see her again. Visitation for Delores will be on Thursday, August 30th, from 10 am to 11 am at Ouimet Bros., Concord Funeral Chapel, 4125 Clayton Road, Concord, CA 94521. The funeral service will begin at 11 am on Thursday at the chapel. She will be laid to rest at Memory Gardens in Concord.
