She liked quilting and crocheting and cooking. She was well known for her tortillas and chicken and rice. She collected porcelain dolls and loved old cars, especially antique one and enjoyed watching her husband and boys work on the cars. She loved to drive, do the "twist" and would make her brother Raul, who she was close to, get up and dance the twist with her. Dolores, or Lolita as she was nicknamed, was a fiesty, plain spoken lady and loved being around her grandchildren. Her home and her boys and their families were her passion and her world.
