She was a graduate of Eastside High School, Paterson, NJ.  Dolores had several jobs throughout her life, but what she did best was caring for children.  She was a foster parent for decades, caring for well over 100 children over the years, four of which she adopted as her own.  She was voted Foster Parent of the Year in 1996.  She was also a member of St. Pius X Church in Forked River, NJ.
