Dolores was a graduate of Chariton High school in 1947 and enjoyed attending her class reunions. She had her first job at Flatts Ice Cream Shop in Chariton and worked at the Family Shoe Store. Dolores learned to make custom draperies, and decided to open her own business. She later expanded to a full service furniture retail store in Chariton. She remained a business owner for 35 years.
Other achievements included recognition by then Governor Terry Branstad to honor Iowa’s volunteers. Dolores was an active participant in her church and local community projects.
