Born October 16, 1928 in Joliet, Dolores was a daughter of Jacob and Antonio (Lesh) Paskvan. Dolores was a very prayerful woman and deeply devoted to her Catholic faith. She attended Mass daily for years and then when she couldn’t attend in person she continued to celebrate Mass at home on her television. She prayed all day long.

In her free time, Dolores loved doing puzzles and crocheting. Her most treasured times were always spent with her family. Dolores loved her family, especially her grandchildren and great-grandson. They always brought a big smile to her face. Dolores will be deeply missed by all who knew her.

Also, Jolene Chamblee, who was like a daughter to Dolores, was a great companion and shopping buddy for years.
