  3. Donna, Susan, Albert, Jeff and families,
    Our sincere sympathy to you all on the passing of your mom. Family, traditions and Palisades Park were very important to her. Her love of animals is shared by us as well. Aunt Dolores was a special aunt who loved and remembered all her sisters and brothers -in-laws and their families. We will miss her. May she Rest In Peace with her beloved family in Heaven. You are all in our thoughts and prayers at this time. Love Cousin Charlotte, George and family.

  4. Can someone verify if Delores’ maiden name was O’Donald please. If so I would be happy to share my adolescent stories and memories about what she meant to me while growing up in the 1940s in West New York NJ.
    May I hear from her family please.
