A loving daughter, wife, mother, and grandmother, Dolores went home to be with her Lord and Savior on Sunday, June 25, 2006 after a courageous battle with cancer. Dolores was a “Proverbs 31” woman with her caring, compassionate nature, deep faith, wisdom, and keen sense of artistic grace and beauty. Born August 21, 1931 in Chicago, Illinois to Lydia and Fred Chilton and married to Edwin A. Arvesen in 1951, she lived in Elmhurst, Illinois until moving to Richardson, Texas in 1974. Dolores is survived by her mother, her husband of Richardson; sons David (and Malinda), Paul, and Thomas of Dallas, and Jon Arvesen of Elmhurst, and her grandchildren David, John, and Katherine. She also is survived by a sister Phyllis (Louis) Berry of Las Vegas, NV, and brother Richard (Cheri) Chilton of Genoa City, WI. A memorial service will be held at 7:00 PM Tuesday, June 27, 2006 at Canyon Creek Presbyterian Church in Richardson.
