MIDDLETON/MARTINSVILLE/CROSS PLAINS-Dolores Mary Ann (Laufenberg) Simon, age 92, passed away surrounded by her loving family on Wednesday, Jan. 23, 2019, at St. Mary’s Hospital in Madison.

Dolores married the love of her life, John M. “Jack” Simon, on August 5, 1947, at Holy Redeemer Catholic Church in Madison.

Dolores was a stay-at-home mother until her children were in school, and her house was always full of love and laughter. She babysat for other children and spent 12 years as a Nursing Assistant at Middleton Village. Her kind nature and warm heart were admired by everyone who was lucky to know her. Throughout her life, Dolores loved horses and gardening, and she had a flair for sewing and crafts.
