She received her GED and earned a college degree in her 30’s and was the Director of Communication’s for the Urban League of Rochester.
Dolores loved words, reading them writing them and saying them.
The world is a quieter place without her and she will be missed.
So blessed to have had this woman in my life when I was growing up. She was always so welcoming and would lend an ear anytime. I thought that she was hilarious and she made laugh all of the time with her little quirky things and sayings! I will miss her! She will always be my second mom and I will always love her.
I am very sorry to learn of Delores’ passing. She was a valued member of the Planning and Research staff at the Urban League of Rochester for a number of years. She was passionate about social Justice issues, and a strong advocate for those causes. She had a great sense of humor about many things and was highly regarded by her colleagues. It was my pleasure to work with her.
