Dolores met Cecil Werner in the spring of 1947 in East Moline, Illinois. Cecil was born and raised in Golconda, IL. On August 31, 1947 they married at the First United Methodist Church in Golconda, IL. Over the years they lived in Freeport, Cambridge, Wauconda and Island Lake, all in Illinois. Dolores worked at the Wauconda grade school as a cook for many years while taking care of a home and family. Later she worked at the McHenry, IL Hospital. She loved going camping and fishing, so every summer they went to Northern Wisconsin on vacation to a place in the woods to a place called Bladder Lake. It was a beautiful place to be. She also loved baking, cooking, crocheting, pets (animals) and going to church every Sunday.

In 1979 they retired and moved to Golconda, IL where they became active members at the Gospel Mission Tabernacle Church becoming youth leaders and giving anyone a ride to church when needed. They really loved the kids and doing things for them.

In 2003 she lost her beloved husband Cecil to Alzheimer’s disease. He was 75 years old and she was 72 years old.

Also, many nieces, nephews and friends.

She is preceded in death by her parents; her beloved husband, Cecil of 56 years; four brothers and their wives, Melvin (Joan) Palmer, Virgil (Marlene) Palmer, Harvey (Darlene) Palmer and Richard (Betty Palmer and three nephews.
