My condolences to the family and so sorry for your loss. Delores was a wonderful person……
Dolores was the first smile I met when my husband Jerry and I first walked into St. Alphonsus parish back in 1994. We quickly became friends with Dolores and her husband Frances. She was a great listener and was a loving and caring friend. She enjoyed sitting outside on her porch in the summer, and I am glad I got to sit with her and talk. Also, Dolores appreciated my talent and I will sing for her in my heart.
I’m so sorry to read of your loss. While there is nothing that can take the sting of death away, may you find comfort in God’s promise to one day, “swallow up death forever” (Isaiah 25:8) and to “wipe away the tears from all faces,” (Revelation 21:4) And even more comforting to know, God will have “all those in the memorial tombs come out” free of sickness, old age and pain. (John 5:28,29) May these scriptures help you cope until that time comes. For more information, type the following link into your browser: tinyurl.com/mezwv23.
Delores was a wonderful friend and always a mother figure during my time in Wheeling. Always had an ear to listen and a heart that cared and made a person feel loved. A truly wonderful soul. RIP sweet friend.
So sad to hear of Mrs. Trabert’s passing. She and my mother were friends when we lived in Wheeling back in the 50’s. I remember her as being a June Cleaver like lady back then. RIP, Mrs. Trabert…..
My sincere and deepest condolences to the family and friends of Dolores. Denny Albaugh
