Dolores Damron, age 89, died June 6th, 2022 at Grandpa’s House Assisted Living in Fenton. She is the loving wife of James Damron. Surviving are her daughter Leslie (Bart) Andrews; grandchild, Lindsay (Cody) Jones; and brother, Manuel (Gina) Fifo. She was preceded in death by her parents, Manuel & Helen Fifo; and siblings Helen, Marcelina, and Frank.
She was beautiful, kind, loving, incredibly thoughtful and loved by all who met her. No matter where I went with mom the sentiment from those she met was always the same, she’s our favorite! She’s so sweet. We just love her.
Mom loved people and enjoyed baking and doing thoughtful things for everyone. She always appreciated the simple things in life and took comfort in her strong faith in God and enjoyed her daily readings and spending quiet time in prayer.
She was always busy and never sat still for long. In retirement she and her husband remodeled their retirement home in Tennessee. There she was surrounded by nature and took great pleasure in watching the beauty of each season as it unfolded. She especially loved watching the birds building their nests or the deer meandering through the yard. They also had the occasional bear that would make his rounds - that made for some interesting stories!
In her younger years, mom enjoyed working as a switchboard operator in the local hospital. There too, she would keep herself busy working on her meticulously crafted quilts that she would sew by hand with such precision you would think they had been done on a machine. We were not at all surprised when she won an award for one of her quilts.
When she wasn’t at work, she enjoyed working in the yard and gardening. She would can everything from tomatoes, beans, and corn to honey, jellies and jams (which she was known for).
She is a truly beautiful soul that will be missed by all whose lives she touched.
A memorial service will be held to celebrate her life at Glen Eden Lutheran Memorial Park Cemetery Saturday, July 2 @ 11am
