We lost our beloved mother, sister, daughter and friend unexpectedly in July 2021, at her home in San Jose California. She is survived by her children, Ernie, Rudy, Ray and Trisha, her grandchildren, Alexis, Eric, Novi, Nathan, Grayson, Avery and Emmy, her mother Norma and her siblings, Anthony, Liz, Linda and Elly as well as her in-laws, nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins and many friends, all of whom loved her dearly. Dolores is predeceased by her father, Raymond.
Dolores was born and raised in the Bay Area and her true joy in life were her kids and grandchildren. Dolores loved the finer things in life. She enjoyed traveling the world, eating and cooking amazing food, and wine tasting. Dolores would light up every room she entered with her outgoing spirit, infectious smile and natural beauty.
She was truly the life of the party!
She was loved tremendously by all those who came in contact with her. For everyone who shared in her life, it is hoped that you would carry on with her kindness, compassion, loyalty, humor, and heart of gold. Her positive attitude and infectious laugh will surely be missed but the memories we hold in our hearts will last a lifetime!
Funeral services will be held on Wednesday, August 11th at 11:00 am at Saint Lucy's Catholic Church, 2350 Winchester Boulevard, Campbell, CA followed by burial services at the Santa Clara Mission Cemetery, 490 Lincoln Street, Santa Clara, CA.
