Dolores “Dolly”, born April 4, 1928 in Pittsburgh to the late James and Eva Flowers died peacefully on Thursday, May 19, 2022 following a brief illness. She was preceded in death by her husband David of 70 years, her son, Michael, and her brother Donald Flowers. Dolly was a devoted mother to her six children and treasured grandmother to her 13 grandchildren and 17 great-grandchildren who were the light of her life. She met the love of her life on a blind date and their love was an example for the family they raised together and the love they described in one word “Always”. As her family grew, so did her love for them and her friends. Dolly had friends for decades and many that were new. In the early years of her retirement, she surprised her children with beautiful water colors that she painted. She so enjoyed her bridge games until her vision took that joy away. She appreciated her friends and made everyone feel unconditionally loved. Her grandchildren were the light of her life and the joy she felt when she was with her great-grandchildren was palpable.
She is survived by her children Jennifer Rush (Dennis), David (Carol), Lisa Streb (Raymond), John (Jen), and Paul. She also leaves behind many nieces and nephews. We know that upon her arrival in heaven she will greet her Lord and her vision will be restored and she will be able to see her loved ones and friends once more, and this will bring he so much joy.
Friends received Sunday 2-6 p.m. at Devlin Funeral Home Inc., 806 Perry Hwy, North Hills. Mass of Christian Burial at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Parish, St. Sebastian Church Monday at 10:00 a.m. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations to the Spark of Hope at St Sebastian Church, 311 Siebert Rd, Pittsburgh, Pa 15237.
