Dolores Victoria Gaitan
February 7, 1934 ~ March 19, 2021
Dolores Victoria Gaitan, 87, passed away surrounded by family March 19, 2021 due to ALS. She was born February 7, 1934 in Bakersfield, California to Henry and Rose Padilla. Dolores was a dedicated mother, first and foremost. She treasured her children and embraced every moment with them. She especially loved her role as a Nana.
Until her health condition made it impossible, Dolores’ hands were constantly busy from cooking, crocheting and sewing. Her quilts were sent to friends, family, church missions and hospitals or anyone she knew that needed a little extra love and warmth.
Dolores is survived by her six children and their spouses; 16 grandchildren; and 15 great-grandchildren; along with her six brothers and sisters; and a multitude of nieces and nephews. Dolores was preceded in death by her mother and father; brother Dennis; daughter-in-law Teri Ann; and infant son Anthony.
Dolores wished to be cremated. A Mass celebrating her life will be held April 19, 2021 at 10:30 a.m. at St. Rose of Lima Catholic Church. Mass will be immediate family only due to COVID-19 restrictions at the church.
