They traveled the country together, always on the lookout for the next Beaver-memento! Corky's father played baseball and gave her a love of the game. She was an avid Portland Beaver Baseball fan, regularly listening on her transistor radio.
Dolores was preceded in death by her husband, Eugene. She is survived by her sister, Marilyn; and her children, Randall, Garry and Peggy; Six grandchildren; and Five great-grandchildren.
