Dolores grew up in St. Louis and was a graduate of the Affton High School class of 1948. She often shared fond memories of her time there with her parents and working in their store and with her friends and extended family. She married her first husband and had her two eldest children before moving to Oklahoma in the 1950s. Here she had twelve more children and spent her time as a loving mother, a talented seamstress, and a grandmother to all. Dolores was an avid gardener, a strong bowler, and loved to play the slot machines. She was fashionable in her dress; making many of her own clothes, and particular about her earrings, lipstick, and perfume. She was a wonderful cook; usually cooking for an army of people. She enjoyed musicals, Andy Griffith, and the Golden Girls. Her taste in music was diverse, but Nat King Cole was her favorite. She loved to watch boxing and Thunder basketball; often yelling at the television and spent much of her time doing crossword puzzles and crocheting. In September of 1982, she married the love of her life, a meticulous chef with a kind heart, Willie King. The two shared a love like no other. With him, she enjoyed vacations to Las Vegas, Chinese food, hosting holiday gatherings for family, and most of all, time together at home cooking or watching their favorite shows. Together, they modeled love and respect for the entire family. In her 91 years, she spread passion and joy to her friends, family, and co-workers. She was loved and admired by all who knew her and will be greatly missed. “Her children rise up and call her blessed; Her husband also, and he praises her.” Proverbs 31:2 “So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love. 1 Corinthians 13:13 Services will be held Monday, June 7 at 11:00 a.m. at St. Philip Neri Catholic Church.
