I remember Dolores from my days as secretary and musician at St. Paul's Lutheran and from the VFW Auxiliary. She was truly a beautiful person, inside and out. She made the world a gentler place.

My condolences to the Krueger family. How well I remember her, Harold, and their children from my early days at St. Paul's. I remember Dolores as my first grade Sunday School teacher in the old kitchen at church. Thank you for her enduring memory.
