Dolores Paretta, age 63, of Bloomington, MN. After an 18 year battle with breast cancer, Dolores passed away on June 14. Although she was in what most would consider unbearable pain, she never complained. The reason she continued to battle her disease was to be with and help her children whom she adored. Survived by children, Oscar and wife, Becky, Tom and wife, Stephanie, Debbi, Louie and her cherished grandchildren, Tom, Alyssa, Angie, Matt and her newest grandson, Nicholas, whom she had not yet met. Also special friend, Virgil Sigerud. As a young woman, Dolores worked in a drapery room and later began her own custom drapery business. When Dolores was not working hard she would enjoy the company of her close friends. Dolores' loving, kindness, courage, strength and determination will be missed by all those who know and love her.
