Memories Timeline


  1. Fargo ND
    I just received in the mail at Mesa, AZ
    where we have been for the past month, a notice of Delores’s obiturary.
    I was devastated to think I had missed her passing on and her funeral.

    I called on Delores in the name of Nativity Church & Befriender program.
    I fell in love immediately with this cheerful, positive, lively, sharp individual. She was someone special in my life and I treasured her friendship. She was so grateful for every moment in her life and was the finest example of how to live with the love of God in your heart.

    I will miss Delores greatly. She loved her family very much and so appreciated what was done for her. I extend my sympathy to all of you in the loss of such a fine young 91 yr old woman.

    A donation will be made to the Fr. Jack
    Davis mission in her honor.

  2. Aunt Dolores will be greatly missed. She was an amazing listener and was always there for our family to provide unending love and support over the years – always ready to lead us in a prayer, hold our hand, and give hugs. I have many fond memories of her visits to the farm in the summers, and she always wrote me letters wherever I lived. Much love and sympathy:)

  3. My deepest sympathy to the family for the loss of your dearly beloved one. May your hearts find comfort in knowing that Jehovah God loves us –Romans 5:8, Psalms 83:18, and his son, Jesus Christ promised one day soon, we will be reunited with our dear loved ones again here on earth. And too – older ones will become young again –Job 33:25 – John 5:28, 29 -Psalms 37:29.

    I was so sad to read of Dolores’s passing! She was my absolute favorite patient! For many, many years I have known her, we always had so much fun when she came to see Dr. Haugen.
    I wish her God’s peace and comfort. Dolores was a wonderful lady…I will never forget her!
