Memorial services will be at 1:00 pm, Friday, January 11th at The Heights Church with Dr. Mark Shaw officiating. Dolores was born on March 23, 1936 in Grandfield, OK, to parents Orval and Mabel (Davenport) Hardesty. She attended elementary school in Lawton, OK and graduated from Carlsbad High School in 1954.

She was active in several campus organizations including serving as treasurer and president of Chi Omega sorority during her college years. Dolores taught high school chemistry, general math and earth science from 1958-1962, then took several years off when her children were small.
