While raising her family, she helped her husband on the family farm which was located on Norrisville Road. In her younger years she worked in her father’s grocery store. Dolores enjoyed reading but her greatest joy in life was being with her family, especially her grandchildren. Dolores will be remembered for her outstanding character. She lived her daily life in her beliefs of faith, hope and love, especially love.

In addition to her parents and her husband, Frank, of 51 years, Dolores was preceded in death by a brother, John (Jack) Redigan.

Family and friends are invited to call on Monday from 4 to 7 p.m. at Stephen P. Mizner Funeral Home & Cremation Services Inc., 404 Chestnut St., Meadville, where a scripture service will be conducted at 4.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at St. Brigid Roman Catholic Church, 383 Arch St., Meadville, at 1 p.m. on Tuesday, with Father Johnathan Schmolt, pastor, as celebrant.

Dolores will be laid to rest next to her husband, Frank, in St. Brigid Cemetery, West Mead Township.
