Born on June 15, 1931, in Pittsburgh, she was a daughter of the late Walter and Lyda Baumgard.
She was married Kenneth W. Whippo in 1950, and they were married 65 years before his death in 2015.
Raised in Pittsburgh, she later grew up in Vanport.
Dolores was a homemaker and raised nine children on the family farm.
She was a member of the Rochester Free Methodist Church, serving as a Sunday school teacher and was committed to the Tri-State Free Methodist Family Camp.
She is survived by her nine children, Debbie (Hal) Haire of Enon Valley, Dan Whippo of Owego, New York, Laurie (Charlie) Mahosky of Wampum, Cathy (Jeff) Diddle of East Liverpool, Ohio, Janie (Peter) Knaus of Kensington, Connecticut, Wally (Lyn) Whippo of Enon Valley, Ginny (David) Bredl of New Castle, Tom (Janet) Whippo of Enon Valley and Barbie (Jim) Bredl of Enon Valley.

Dolores was preceded in death by her husband, Ken; her grandson, Travis W. Haire, Lt. Commander U.S. Navy; and going before her was an infant daughter, Audrey; and two grandchildren, Allison and Justin Bredl. Also preceding her in death were her brother, Joseph Baumgard; and her sisters, Lois Wolfe, Rita Ely, Joan Weldon and Nancy Carpenter.
She will surely be loved and missed by family and friends, but we rejoice that she is walking and talking with her Lord now. We know we will see her again.
