Dolores Josephine Hernandez Henry, 70, died peacefully in her home on Feb. 13, 2014. Dolores was a loving wife, a sister, a caring mother and grandmother, and a beloved nurse.

Dolores was born on March 31, 1943, in San Antonio, Texas, where she graduated from Providence High School. She received her nursing diploma from James R.
