Dolores S. Mendham

Dolores Susan Mendham, 91 of East Jordan, passed away at home surrounded by family on Friday, October 9, 2020.

Born in Detroit, Michigan on November 24, 1928, she was the daughter of John H. and Sarah (Loewen) Krocker.

On February 24, 1951 Dolores married Robert W. “Bill” Mendham Sr. in Farmington, Michigan.  He preceded her in death on January 13, 2020, just a month before their 69th wedding anniversary.

Dolores was a loving wife, mother and grandmother who enjoyed caring for her family, always creating a warm and loving household.  She especially enjoyed baking and reading.  A lifelong animal lover, she enjoyed feeding the many birds around her home which she did faithfully, everyday.  Dolores was a shy but strong woman with a great sense of humor.  She will be sadly missed and forever loved.

Dolores is survived by her two children, Susan Patricia (David) Evans of Wyoming, MI and Robert William (Cheryl) Mendham Jr. of Harbor Springs; 10 grandchildren and 6 great grandchildren; and several nieces and nephews.  She was also preceded in death by her parents; her sister, Pearl Ricketts and her brother, Wilmer Krocker.

In keeping with her wishes, her family will remember her privately at a family memorial gathering.
