OFFICIAL OBITUARY FOR

Dolores E (Greene) Pitre

1937 - 2021

Lake Wales

OBITUARY Print

Dolores, 83 was carried to Heaven peacefully in her sleep Monday, May 24th, 2021.

Hailing from Miami, to Deland, and then with her daughter’s family to Sebring then Lake Wales, people would say Dolores was unlike anyone else you would ever meet.

A beautician by trade, Dolores enjoyed fashion and beauty, and was very involved in beauty pageantry during her time in Miami. In her later years, she found joy in painting and crafting, often giving her creations to her family members, undoubtedly including some type of bedazzled element. She also loved puzzles and anything pink, purple or sparkly.

With the confidence, sass and glamour of a movie star, she was known as “Diva” or “Queenie”and much beloved by the staff members who cared for her.

A social butterfly, she was a member of welcoming committees for new residents of the facilities she resided in. And whenever getting to know her, the topic of conversation would undoubtedly be about those closest to her.

Nothing would bring a smile to her face more than bragging about her family. A very fun, zany and creative grandmother (Mimi), happy memories of the million times they watched The Lion King and ate “eyeballs and puppy dog tail soup” in the Florida room for lunch will forever be cherished.

While the Covid-19 pandemic kept them apart for more than a year, God brought them together for her granddaughter’s recent December wedding, and as lockdown restrictions eased, it allowed her daughter Suezette to resume their visits.

The family will always treasure their special memories and are grateful Dolores is no longer suffering and is happy, healthy, and laughing in heaven.

My sister, Dolores, will always be remembered, loved, and missed. She could certainly light up a room with her presence and smile. When I was young, I had the pleasure of loving and entertaining her three sons, Ronald Leon (Ronnie) Booth, Jr, Robert Warren Booth, and Kenneth Lee Booth. They were my playmates. Then she blessed the family with a daughter, Suezette Carol Booth Egan who was the princess of the family.

When she went to beauty school she practiced on me but I reaped the benefit of those sessions later in life with free weekly hair appointments. Dolores was very generous as well as talented. She was my Matron of Honor at our wedding and though distance separated our paths we always stayed close.

I am forever thankful that Dolores was my sister.

I remember Dolores well from her time at Fairway Pines. She definitely was the social butterfly and the diva. Always had beautiful clothes. Quite the artist if I remember right and had her apartment done up in her style. Hopefully she is at peace and soaring high above. She was a beautiful lady indeed.
