~~Dolores Dewling (nee: Loeber), 80, of Chatham Township, peacefully passed away on Wednesday, July 26, 2017 at home, surrounded by her family.
Born and raised in Brooklyn, Dolores lived in Staten Island for 10 years before moving to Chatham in 1972. She worked for the Chatham Board of Education, in the front offices of the Milton Avenue Elementary School and Chatham High School.

She was never one to question, always one to help, and her infectious zest for life will leave a lasting imprint on the many lives she’s touched. Dolores was an avid reader and loved the beach.
She is survived by her husband of 59 years, Richard T.; children Richard and his wife Amy, Susan Rand and her husband Peter, and Craig and his wife Marianne; grandchildren Catherine, Daniel, Samantha, Thomas, Courtney, Jeffrey, Blythe, Juliana and Kaitlin & Maddie Malloy; sister Diane Pizzi and cousin Michael Mauro.
