Dolores Collene (Smith) Wright
(Dee) passed away on July 27, 2023, at the age of 91.  Dolores was born on June 1, 1932, in Stroud, Oklahoma to Newton (Bob) and Myrtle Smith.
Dolores moved to Southern California in 1936.  She graduated from Puente Union High School in 1950 and then later in life she earned her Nursing Aid Certificate.  While in high school she met Robert C.

While growing up in California Dolores enjoyed spending time on the ranch with her dad and hanging out with her cousins.  During high school she was involved in sports and music.  She went on to play in a volleyball league for many years.  She also enjoyed going on family campouts, boating, water skiing, traveling, sightseeing, and visiting loved ones.  Her greatest joy was spending time with her grandkids and great grandkids.  In 1995 Dolores and Bob moved to Shawnee where they enjoyed many years of retirement together.
