Dolores worked for Kelly Girls upon completion of secretarial training and then the railroad as an executive secretary. Dolores loved to travel using her railroad pass, a benefit with the railroad for free travel. Dolores reentered the workforce after raising their son. Dolores was the chief Children’s Librarian at Wood County Public Library where she started a Children’s Story Hour where she created and made characters to support the stories she read to the children she dearly loved. She made stories come alive for hundreds of children for nearly twenty years.
Dolores loved crafting, knitting, sewing, game shows and playing golf. She was a founding member of St. Jerome Catholic Church in Walbridge, OH where Ed and Dolores were active, contributing members.
