Dolores A. King, 76 of Brooklyn, New York, was born on May 31, 1942 to (the late) Frank Sanabria and Frances Sanchez. She died peacefully in her home on Saturday, December 15, 2018.
Dolores worked as a Holiday Design Coordinator for Spaeth Design, Inc. until she retired. Later, she worked part time as a School Bus Matron.
Dolores was a very generous and giving lady who took family in when needed, and fed you when you were hungry, no matter who you were.
Dolores always took her Puerto Rican heritage to heart, as you could regularly hear her saying “I’m a proud Puerto Rican”. She was also proud of her last name; if someone looked like a Sanabria, she would say “There goes a Sanabria!”.
For fifty-one years -- a half a century -- Dolores was married to Gerald Duane King which shows you that true love does exist. She also took great pride in her children: Jojo, Tricia, Roxanne, Bernard, George, Gerald, Arthur and especially Vernell; and her grandchildren as well (too many to name them all). Dolores was the Matriarch of the family. She would always sing happy birthday to you on your birthday, and when she smiled, it would light up the room.
The most precious thing about Dolores was that she was loyal to a tee . . . hard to find these days. She was clearly very unselfish; she would give her last penny to you if you needed it. So here is to the greatest mother and grandmother ever --the proud Puerto Rican -- Dolores King!!!
