She was born on November 12, 1931 in Red Bank Twp. Clarion County; daughter of the late Albert Sterling and Lucille Dean Hilliard.

John Milliron, pastor of the Baker Street Church of God of Rimersburg. Interment will follow in the Grandview Cemetery in Sligo. Words of remembrance from her daughter, Pamela David: My mother was a smart, pretty lady. She married her beloved husband, Karl. She referred to him as the basketball star. Karl attended the Sligo High School and played for the opposing team. Dolores was a cheerleader and she attended Union High School in Rimersburg. Dolores was the strength of our family and held us together through the tragic death of our father. My mother always loved to talk with us about any problems we had. She will be greatly missed. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that to honor their mother, donations be made to the charity of your choice in memorial for Dolores E. Weyand.
