Dolores later relocated to Parkwood Heights Assisted Living in Macedon, NY and most recently was a resident of Wayne County Nursing Home, Lyons, NY.

Dolores was devoted to her family. As her family grew, she took great pride in her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. In her later years, she enjoyed crafts including macramé, paper tole, crocheting and ceramics. She also enjoyed playing Michigan rummy, bingo, and dominoes.

Dolores is survived by four children: Joyce Monje of Liverpool, NY, John (Susan) King of Franklin, MA, James King of Elmira, NY, and Jay King of Montpelier, VT; seven grandchildren; eight great grandchildren; and her brother Walter August of Denver, Co.
