Born in 1947, Dolores moved to Fort St. James and lived there with her family until the summer of 1961 when they moved to Campbell River. During her younger years, she took a keen interest in art which she continued through her entire life. She married young and raised two children while working at the Discovery Inn and then for over 20 years for the NorIsle Co-op. After retiring she was able to take up art again in earnest. The natural world is what called to her through her art.
A Celebration of Life was held at 1:00pm, Saturday, January 4, 2014 at Sutton’s Funeral Home, 502 S. Dogwood St. Cremation to take place.
