Dolores Armentrout passed away unexpectedly on November 16, 2020, after living for a time with dementia. Dolores was born December 22, 1941, in Seattle, Washington. She graduated from Highline High School in 1960. She married her high school sweetheart, Peter Armentrout, and they built their home in Enumclaw.
Dolores was a creative force and full of life. She dedicated herself to raising her children and she ran her own floral business. She also worked in a bank, a pickle factory, and at Columbia Winery but her favorite job was her stint as a dresser for male models. Dolores enjoyed skiing and travel, that included a safari in Kenya. She loved all animals and had many pets. Dolores had a killer sense of humor; her stories and jokes are legendary.
Dolores loved her beautiful home and garden. She was perpetually redecorating and painting. She would paint one room after the other, moving through the house from one end to the other with no plan to ever stop. Anyone who dropped by would likely find her in the middle of a project and be invited to help haul a load of bark, pull some weeds, move some rock, sweep a deck, wash a window, or climb up for something that was just out of reach.
Dolores will be missed and survived by her children: Jeff (Kelly) Armentrout and Kim Wiersma (Scott, d.); grandchildren Courtney (Spencer), Samuel (AnnaBell), Joseph, Theo, and Phoebe; and great-grandchild Emery. She was preceded in death by her parents, Viola and John Blakey, brother, Richard, and former spouse, Peter Armentrout.
A celebration of life is planned for the summer. Memorials may be made to the Humane Society.
