In Loving Memory

Kinsella, Dolores Ann

Dolores Ann Kinsella, (née: Guzy) also known as Dodie, passed away on August 25, 2021 at the age of 94, in Sammamish, WA at her home surrounded by her family. She was a loving wife to Robert for 55 years, devoted mother of six, loving and devoted grandmother of 12, great grandmother of eight, and a lifelong community volunteer, Dolores is survived by her children, Robert (Barbara), Kathleen (Howard), William (Carolyn), Joseph, John (Mary) and James (Robert); her grandchildren, Lisa, Tim, Sarah, Brian, Kelly, Ben, Jeff, Rebecca, Erin, Isaac, Christopher, Michael; and her great grandchildren, Will, Caroline, Patrick, Molly, Parker, Nola, Tate and Kendall.

Born on September 4, 1926 in St. Louis, Dolores graduated from St. Elizabeth Academy at 16 and attended St Louis University while she worked as a legal secretary for Judge Chubb, at the law firm Lewis, Rice, Tucker, Allen and Chubb, now known as Lewis Rice. Later, as a stay-at-home mother, she worked as a legal transcriber from her home office, a business she continued until age 70. A devout Catholic all her life, Dolores was a member of St. Catherine Laboure parish in South County since 1961. She was often described as a “tireless worker,” and despite raising six children and running her own business, she was also a dedicated volunteer. She tutored reading at St. Catherine’s parish grade school for more than 30 years; she launched a Church-cleaning crew that is still functioning today; and she served as a member of the Women’s Guild, providing luncheons for bereaved family members following funerals. Dolores was also an avid bowler, and member of the women’s church league, who bowled together for 40 years. She also attended exercise classes several times a week, and enjoyed walking, often to St. Catherine’s, where she would attend mass daily.

Her sweet, kind nature and beautiful smile will forever live in our hearts!

Funeral service will be held privately due to covid conditions, and directed by Kutis-South County on September 11, 2021 at Mount Hope Cemetery, Lemay, Missouri.
