It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Dolores after a courageous battle with cancer, on Tuesday, June 19th, 2018. Loving wife of Don for 60 years. Beloved mother to Stephen (Leigh), Mark, and Janis (Chris). Cherished Grandmother to Justin, Eric, Christine, and Evan. Great-Grandmother to Lucius and Aubrey. Survived by her devoted Sister, Ramona Loftus as well as Sisters-in-law, Carole Lukewich, Kathy Bran, Maureen Tymburski, dear friend, Carole Hrab and many treasured nieces and nephews.
Dolores always enjoyed recounting a good story and her joyful laugh was contagious. She will be fondly remembered for her sense of humor, kind heart and generous welcome, not to mention, the best date squares and butter tarts in town.

Funeral Mass on Tuesday, June 26th, at 1pm in Precious Blood Parish, 1737 Lawrence Ave. E.. If desired, in lieu of flowers donations can be made in her memory to torontocatrescue.ca
Death Is Nothing At All
All is well
Death is nothing at all,
I have only slipped away into the next room.
Whatever we were to each other, we still are.
Please, call me by my old familiar name.
Speak of me in the same easy way you always did.
Laugh, as we always laughed, at the little jokes we shared together.
Think of me and smile.
Let my name be the household name it always was,
Spoken without the shadow of a ghost in it.
Life means all it ever meant.
It is the same as it ever was.
Death is inevitable, so why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight?
I am but waiting for you, - for an interval very near.
Nothing is past or lost.
One brief moment and all will be as it was before,
Only better and happier.
All is well.
