  1. Our deepest sympathy to the family of Dolores Jensen. I was shocked to see her name in the Daily News obituaries this morning. Dolores was a member of the Serra Club for 29 years , that’s where we met her. She was so delightful, always spoke her mind, and right was right. We admired her for her feisty spirit and life well lived. Rest in peace dear Dolores. Love, Joan and Ron
