Dolores spent the majority of her life in New Jersey comforting and teaching others using her passion for Nursing. She earned her BA in Nursing from Jersey City State College, Masters Degree in Nursing from Seton Hall University and her Doctorate of Education from California Coast University. Dolores taught for many years as a School Nurse in the Irvington New Jersey School District then going on to teaching School Nursing at Caldwell College in New Jersey. She loved regaling her stories and experiences of nursing throughout her lifetime. Dolores also spent years developing a book titled, “Angels in Disguise” that encompassed stories of School Nurses from every state in the United States. Over the years, she enjoyed traveling with other nurses to learn and educate various countries on nursing practices.
A devoted Roman Catholic, Dolores expanded her gift of passion to various organizations and charities. She loved breeding and showing her dogs, many who earned First Place status. She also enjoyed antiquing, the Jersey Shore, traveling with family and friends and living her life whenever and wherever she could. She will be greatly missed by her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren who recently have been her lifeline these past few years.
