Dolores Anne Parsch passed away suddenly at home on Sunday, January 23, 2021 in Laguna Hills, California.

Dolores was born Cleveland, Ohio on October 5, 1931. She met her childhood friend there, turned high school sweetheart and husband, William Mason Parsch. Dolores attended a prestigious magnet high school, West Technical High in Cleveland, Ohio. Soon after, she married William on February 11,1950 and enjoyed nearly 72 years together, enjoying their children, grandchildren and great grandchildren throughout the years. In 1960, William and Dolores moved west to California where they have spent the last 62 years.

Dolores stayed home with her children until their youngest was about 11 years old, which she shared often that she was so grateful to have had that time with them. She was skilled in accounting and worked for a variety of businesses including Oscar Meyer (which included the perk of free Lunchables that many family members enjoyed), Pacific Christian College, and later ran the administration of their business, William M. Parsch, Inc.

Dolores was active in many organizations over the years and enjoyed supporting many charities, especially St. Jude’s Cancer Research. She loved doing oppositional research and was an active participant in the Laguna Niguel Republican Women’s Club, and earned a recognition award from the Senate in 2005. A true gardening enthusiast, she enjoyed many years being a part of the Nellie Gail Garden Club and enjoying her beautiful backyard garden. Proud of her Italian lineage, she and Bill enjoyed many events with Families of Italian Lineage club, and she even taught herself how to speak and read some Italian. She was also very passionate about researching the genealogies of her and Bill’s family, as well as the extended family members, and spent years digging into everyone’s lineage. She learned that an ancestor had a painting in the Louver, which was so exciting for her as she was a very talented artist and took classes all throughout her life to hone her craft. Dolores enjoyed traveling and had the opportunity to travel to Europe a few times, including many parts of Italy, which was one of her favorite places to experience. Of all the things she loved to do, she loved spending time with her family. She had great joy being a grandma and great-grandma. She will be remembered fondly as a loving wife, mother, nana, and great nana. Her sense of humor, kindness, love, creativity, and encouragement will be missed.

Dolores is survived by her beloved husband of 72 years, William; her sons, William (Marian) Parsch and Tim (Vickii) Parsch, Richard Loomis; and daughters Mary (Jim) Smith and Margaret (Brian) Hoien. She is also survived by her grandchildren; Jessica (Erik) Hansen, Catherine Loomis, Madeline Loomis, Carter Parsch, Pierce Baird, Josie (Javier) Gonzalez and Aaron Hoien. As well as her 5 great grandchildren; Abigail Hansen, Evangeline Hansen, Jacob Hansen, Benjamin Gonzales, and Nathan Gonzales. She is also survived by her sister Geraldine and brother Robert. Dolores was preceded in death by her beloved daughters Jeannie and Anne Marie, as well as her sister Monica, all of whom she dearly loved and missed.
