  1. As hard as it is to lose Dolores she is now in peace and out of pain. Our deepest sympathies and prayers go out to all of the family. She will be missed by her family and all those that knew her.

  2. I was a business associate of Vickie’s and now her friend. Several years ago we were on business in Sydney MT, and the last night there we could not find motel rooms. Vickie called her Mom and at 11:00 that evening she hosted 3 weary women. She had whipped up Vickie’s favorite cake for us between the call and our arrival. She was a gracious lady.

  3. Delores’ life story is beautiful. Remembering her and thinking of her family at this time. A life well lived.

  4. Dolores was a gracious lady and always welcoming. She was a good friend to our mother Florence Finneman and of course a mother in law to my sister Marie. We had many connections to her wonderfulness. Though it is hard to say goodbye, it is nice to know she is at peace. She was a faith filled lady and accepted the bumps in life, losing a husband and son. Prayers for all of your family.
