Obituary for E. Dolores Cavanaugh

October 31, 1928 - December 2, 2017
Newark, Delaware | Age 89


E. Dolores Cavanaugh, age 89, of Newark, DE passed away peacefully on Saturday, December 2, 2017. Born in Elkton, MD on October 31, 1928, Dolores was the daughter of the late Leo and Edith (Gould) Flick.

Dolores was a member of Holy Family Roman Catholic Church. She was a loving and caring person and mother. Her passion to help people is what led her to train as a nurse at Mercy Hospital. She always wanted to make sure that people were taken care of and well fed, especially her family. She enjoyed playing golf, pinochle and bridge and attending her close friends' parties. She also enjoyed watching her sons' and grandchildren play baseball and basketball and could always be counted on to be cheering for them in the stands. She cherished her family dearly and will be missed deeply.

Dolores is survived by her three children: George T. Cavanaugh, Jr. (Linda), Mark Cavanaugh (Katherine) and Patty Avery (Bob); four grandchildren: Mike Cavanaugh, Michelle Dean (Ed), Marie Cavanaugh, and Rob Avery (Carrie); five great grandchildren: Tyler, Ashley, Amber, Ryleah and Shepard; six siblings: Maryann, Kathy, Ruth, Jack, Paul, and Jeanie; step-mother: Ellie; and two step-siblings: Paula Kay and Jimmy.

Including her parents, Dolores was preceded in death by her loving husband, George T. Cavanaugh, Sr. and her two brothers: Leo and Joe Flick.
