Dolores Redmond

Dolores Redmond passed away on November 25th in Oregon City at age 94, surrounded by her loving family. She was preceded in death by her husband of 50 years, Dale Redmond. She leaves behind her son Richard and three daughters Mary, Leslie, and Annette, as well as their respective spouses, Bonnie, Allan, and Phil. Her family also includes six grandchildren (John, Gary, Jason, Lori, Carrie, and Jessica), six great-grandchildren, and one great-great-grandchild.

Dolores was born in White Fish, Montana, on May 22, 1927. As a child, she moved with her family several times throughout the Western states, eventually settling in Oregon City. After graduating from Oregon City High School, she began her nursing training at St. Vincent’s Hospital in Portland and then began her career there. She continued working as a registered nurse at several local facilities, including Oregon City Hospital. She concluded her career in the mid-1980s at Hooper Detox Center in Portland.


While raising her family, she also opened her home to several medically fragile foster children. Her generosity continued throughout her life, as she donated to several charities including Salvation Army, the Oregon Food Bank, and Planned Parenthood. She also did volunteer work as a rape victim advocate, managed finances for people who were unable to, and delivered Meals on Wheels.


In retirement, Dolores enjoyed an active social life. Along with her husband Dale, she enjoyed socializing at the Elks Lodge, as well as volunteering her time to help with their events. She also enjoyed travel. She and Dale camped in RVs, went on a few cruises, and visited Hawaii. With her children, she also visited New England and New Orleans, as well other more local vacations. A travel highlight in her later life was a trip to Scotland where her parents were born. She had an opportunity to meet some relatives there who she continued to correspond with for her remaining days.
