Dolores K. Lord 1922-2010



LEWISTON — Dolores Kompare Lord, 87, a resident of 239 Lake Street, Auburn, passed away from natural causes at St Mary’s d’Youville Pavilion on the morning of April 7.

She was born ninth of ten children to Mary Louise Fabian and Charles Joseph Kompare on September 6, 1922, in Joliet, Illinois. Dolores saw the beauty in this world; she was a generous soul who shared with others all that she was and had to give. May she pass into heaven with the same joy and anticipation shown in photos of her as she passed through this life.

Dolores is survived locally by her daughter and her family, with whom she resided for the past ten years, Arlene Lord Bowles and her husband, Jodd; as well as her grandsons, Ben and Nigel Bowles, of Auburn, and her granddaughter, Phoebe Parker.
