Dolores Quebe went to join her beloved husband, Walt, on Friday, Oct. 5, 2012. He greeted her with a gin on the rocks in time for happy hour.
She was born in Cincinnati. She was the co-founder of Dinner Bell Markets, serving as the president since 1992. Her attention to detail helped create and manage a company going strong into its 40th year.
Dolores is survived by a daughter, Karen (David) Counts; a son, Deron (Lori) Quebe; grandchildren, Ashley, Brittany, Clayton and Christine Counts, and Maxim and Jackson Quebe; great grandchild, Ava Griffith; and friend and in-law, Deanna Dragoo.
She was preceded in death by her parents and husband, Walter.
She was a member of La Sertoma of Greenwood, German American Klub and Red Hats Society and generously volunteered her time throughout her life.
Dolores was known as a true friend to many, maintaining friendships since grade school. She was fiercely loyal to loved ones with an ability to be brutally honest. A wonderful combination of strength and class, a true original, she will be missed by all.
The funeral service will be at 11 a.m. Thursday at Forest Lawn Funeral Home, 1977 S. State Road 135, Greenwood. Visitation will be from 4 to 8 p.m. Wednesday at the funeral home. Entombment will be at Forest Lawn Memory Gardens in Greenwood.
