Dolores Evelyn Johnson, of Dalbo, passed away on Saturday, October 6, 2018 at the Elim Home in Milaca. She was 88 years old.
Dolores was born on February 11, 1930 in Minneapolis, Minnesota to parents Conrad and Esther (Edstrom) Olson. She grew up with her older brother Donald on the family farm north of Dalbo and attended Ogilvie High School, graduating in 1947. After high school, Dolores took a job as an underwriter with Anchor Insurance but after about five years she had to return home to care for her ailing mother. She met Morris Raymond Johnson in Dalbo, and they were married on November 18, 1961 at the Oak Knoll Lutheran Church in Hopkins. In 1962, they moved to Dalbo and purchased the Dalbo Tavern. Dolores and Morris ran the Tavern until 1979, when they sold the business. Dolores then took a job at the Cambridge State Hospital as the food service coordinator, retiring in 1995. In May of 1999, Morris passed away.
Dolores loved to travel and was able to take trips to Germany, Austria, Sweden, Italy, as well as many bus tours throughout the United States with family and friends. She like to crochet, play bingo, solitaire, and pull-tabs. Dolores was a true social butterfly and made friends where ever she went. She was a longtime active member of the Salem Lutheran Church in Dalbo and served on the church council, welca, and was the scorekeeper for the church softball team for numerous years. She will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved her.
Dolores is preceded in death by her parents, husband, son Delmer, and brother Donald (Delores) Olson.
She is survived by her sons, Loren (Sally) and Carl (Pamela); grandchildren, April and Jacob; as well as many other relatives and friends.
