Dolores will be sadly missed by all who knew and loved her.

Her first husband, Lloyd Walker passed away in September 1973; her second husband, Joseph A. Swierz, whom she married in June 1975, died February 3, 2017; son, David L. Walker and a daughter-in-law, Nancy Walker, also preceded Dolores in death.

Per Dolores’ request, there will be no calling hours or services.
