In the pages of life’s story, there are individuals whose essence lingers long after they’ve journeyed onward. It is with a profound sense of loss that we remember the graceful life of Dolores M.

She left this world on September 7, 2023, at the venerable age of 99, leaving an indelible mark on the hearts of those she knew.

Before her, she was reunited with several loved ones: her parents, Troy and Louise; her beloved husband, William; her cherished grandson, Tom; and her dear son-in-law, James.

Yet, the legacy of Dolores continues to shine brightly through her treasured family. Her children, Ronald Krepps (Joanne), Donald “Gary” Krepps (Jeannie), and Cheryl Wroe, are testaments to her enduring love and wisdom. Alongside them stands her sister, Jeannette Jones. Dolores’ life further resonates in the joyful memories shared with her many grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and a multitude of nieces and nephews. Each of these bonds crafted a tapestry of moments, filled with love, laughter, and lessons.
