Dolores will be most remembered for her love and care of her family, especially her children. She was a care-giver her whole life. She owned and operated her own day care for many years in Lisbon Falls, Me. These later years, as she was semi-retired she worked at Hawthorne House in Freeport Maine caring for the needs of the elderly.
Dolores spent most of her adult life in Maine. She reared her 4 Children in Lisbon Falls, Maine as a stay at home mom and business owner. Family was first for her.
As of these last 7 years she moved to Freeport Maine to retire - she loved Freeport and she is quoted as saying, I wish I found it a long time ago. She grew up in Kansas City Mo. with her maternal Aunt and Uncle. In the early 60's she moved to Colorado with her sister Dixie (Shirley) Gasner. Here she married Willis Dean Sutherland of Greely Colorado.
By the early 70's she had married a Norman Pruell of Brunswick Maine whom was stationed in Fort Carson Colorado and they moved to the beautiful state of Maine, where she loved all of its weather.
Dolores loved everything outside. She loved hiking and biking and camping-and still camped out in a pup-tent with her grandson.
Dolores could grow anything and would spend hours in her gardens. She loved long, slow mornings reading her books and sipping coffee, or listening to music. She frequented the shops and eateries of Freeport with her dear friend Annie Rodriguez of Durham.
She loved to travel to Cheyenne WY during Frontier Days and visit with her brothers, and sisters and nieces and nephews.
Dolores is predeceased by her two brothers Bill and Bobby.
Dolores leaves behind her two sisters Sandy (Mary Louise), and Dixie (Shirley), and her 3 brothers Donnie, Larry and Jerry; and many nieces and nephews and grandnieces and nephews.
