DOLORES GUNILDA DARVEAUX was born to Arthur and Loretta (Trecker) Hinners on December 1, 1927 in Arcadia, Iowa where she was raised and attended country school near Manning, Iowa. Later, she moved with her family to Halbur, Iowa and attended St. Angela’s Academy for girls in Carroll, Iowa, graduating in 1945. She then attended Creighton Memorial St. Joseph’s School of Nursing in Omaha, Nebraska where she graduated in 1948 as an RN. On May 31, 1949, she was united in marriage to Henry Darveaux at St. John’s Catholic Church in Omaha. Following their marriage, they lived in Omaha. During this time, she was employed at St. Joseph’s Hospital, Clarkston Hospital and worked as an office nurse for a group of Doctors. In 1955, they moved to Fort Dodge, Iowa and then moved to Perry, Iowa where she was employed at the Lutheran Home. In 1972, they moved to Pipestone, Minnesota and they bought a grocery store which they named Hank’s Foods. In the following years she played the part of mother and cared for her children so that Hank could run the grocery store. In the fall of 2016, they moved into Ridgeview Estates in Pipestone. She died there on Saturday, February 18, 2017 at the age of 89 years, two months and 17 days.
