Dolores and Edward Douglas Rice were married on February 27, 1950, in Highland Park, Michigan. He preceded her in death in 2011. 

Dolores was a Sunday School Teacher, Choir member, and Financial Secretary for many years at Holy Redeemer Lutheran Church in Southgate. For many years she bowled on the Friday night mixed league Mulberry Lanes Kings and Queens. She enjoyed crossword puzzles, scrabble, reading, crochet, picture puzzles, and the past several years — her card group at the Ubly Senior Citizens center.

Per her wishes, cremation has taken place. A memorial service will be held at a later date.
