Dolores was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, aunt, cousin, and sister.

Dolores graduated from A.B. Davis High School in Mt. Vernon, NY (1955), Barnard College (1957), and Presbyterian Hospital School of Nursing (1961) as a Registered Nurse. Dolores obtained her Masters in Counseling in 1981 from Southern Connecticut State University.

Dolores worked at Lawrence Hospital in Bronxville, NY, and served as a visiting nurse and school nurse for the City of New York after receiving her BSRN.

Dolores started work at Danbury Hospital's Intensive Care Unit (ICU) in 1973. In 1983, she transferred to the In-Patient Psychiatry Unit and worked there until 1986. From 1986 until her retirement in 2005, she was the Psychiatric Nurse Clinician of the Crisis Intervention Unit.

Dolores helped start and was very active in the nurse's union. She served on the grievance and negotiating teams for several years. Dolores continued to volunteer her time after retirement working in the emergency room several nights a week.

Dolores loved flowers and was very proud of her porch garden. She was a big time knitter and will be remembered through the many sweaters and blankets she created as well as the needlepoint artwork that will be shared for generations to come. She loved to do the NY Times crossword puzzle each morning with breakfast.

She spent three years working on a huge latch hook rug that eventually adorned the living room. Every member of the family helped and she was very proud of it: but still laughed when recounting how often the cats soiled it.

She loved her four children and four grandchildren.
