Doloris lived a classy, fulfilled life.  When her arms weren’t full of grandkids she loved working and spending many hours in her yard.  She enjoyed a cold glass of iced tea and an ice cream cone from Bruce’s Mall.  She loved to work and camp at her second home on Nine Mile.  Rodeo was always her life, from being the rodeo queen to watching every show on the TV.  On Sundays, her home was full of family and grandchildren to enjoy Sunday dinner.  Her grandchildren and great-grandchildren were her life and she didn’t miss a second with them.
