Obituary for Dolores M. Faber

DOLORES MINNIE FABER was born on April 20, 1925 to Paul and Minnie (Koster) Trautman on the farm in Verdi Township, west of Lake Benton, Minnesota. She was baptized that very day and was later confirmed on June 25, 1939 at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Verdi. She attended country school and graduated from Lake Benton High School in 1954. Dolores was united in marriage to Woodrow “Woody” Faber on April 18, 1954 at St. John’s Evangelical Lutheran Church in Lake Benton. The couple made their home in town for several years before relocating to a farm just east of Lake Benton. They later returned to town and remained there until transitioning together to the nursing home in Hendricks, Minnesota. On November 1, 2014, Woody preceded Dolores in death. They were reunited once again on Tuesday, December 11, 2018, when she passed away peacefully at the age of 93 years, 7 months, and 21 days.

Dolores was an active member of St. John’s Lutheran Church in Lake Benton. She volunteered her time with the Dorcas Society and taught Sunday School. She also worked for 25 years at the post office before retiring as Post Master. In her spare time, she enjoyed sewing and crocheting. She loved to play cards and many other games. Some of her favorite memories were made on the various bus trips she took with Woody. Her family will always remember the labor of love she put into making homemade rolls for holidays and her wonderful doughnuts. She will be greatly missed.

Dolores is survived by her son, Noel (Roni) of Bloomington, Minnesota; grandchildren, Alison (Ryan) Dotzenrod of Wyndmere, North Dakota and Nathan (Casey) Faber of San Diego, California; great-grandchildren, Samantha, Cody, Luke, and Oscar; and sister-in-law, Spin Trautman. She was preceded in death by her husband, Woody; her parents, Paul and Minnie; brothers, Norman and Thorvald (Bernice) Trautman; and sister-in-law, Winifred Faber.

Blessed be her memory.
