Dolores E. Selby, 80, of Modesto, Calif. passed away Wednesday, Nov. 1, 2006, at her daughter's home surrounded by a loving family of children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
She was born in Scott's Bluff, Neb. She had lived for 25 years in Sunnyside, prior to living in Modesto. She had been a resident at Walnut Grove Assisted Living in Modesto for the past two and a half years.
She is survived by her children, Sharon (Jim) Beamer of Vacaville, Roxie (Rich) Taylor of McMinnville, Ore., Janeen (Craig) Studley of Modesto and Ken (Leah) Selby of Anchorage, Alaska; 10 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren.
She was preceded in death by her husband, LeRoy Selby, on Jan. 26, 2003.
Graveside services were held Tuesday, Nov. 14, 2006, at San Joaquin National Cemetery in Santa Nella, Calif.
She left all who knew her with a smile on their face and joy in their hearts as her love and sense of humor was truly God's gift. Even though she had Alzheimer's, God granted her wish that she would never forget her children's' names.
A special thank you from the family to the staff at Memorial Hospital and Community Hospice, for their care and comfort during her short illness.
Eaton Family Funeral Home of Modesto was in charge of arrangements.
