Dolores Anita Wellwood was born August 21, 1927 in Colorado to Lupe and Amando Gomez. She married Earl Eugene Wellwood on May 26, 1962 in Nevada, to whom she was married until his death in 2015. Within those years she became a mother to nine children, then a grandmother and a great-grandmother. She passed on June 03, 2018 surrounded by the love and warmth of her family. These events shaped her life but are not all that make her; her complexity, strength and devotion are only held within memories of those who knew her. We carry her heart (we carry it in our hearts).
