Dolores was a lifelong resident of New Waterford, OH, raising her family, running a business and giving back to the community. She was a loving soul who will be missed by many.

Mom was a dedicated member of the First Presbyterian Church, New Waterford where she served her Lord in many capacities. Some of her roles included, church treasurer, preschool treasurer and the official “maker of the coffee.” A member of many social and civic organizations, Mom found it most rewarding when she was helping others. Visiting shut-ins, delivering lap blankets, Mom loved the warm smiles and tender hugs she got in return. She always took time for others whether family or friend.

Also left to cherish her memory are, a stepson, Mike Davis, his wife, Cindy and family, Janie, Amy, Andrew and Brianna; along with a host of nieces and nephews. Forever, she will live in our hearts.
