Dolores Kay Sher

June 29, 1942 — September 24, 2021

Dolores Kay Monday was born on June 29, 1942 in Dallas, Texas to J.W. (Bill) and Laura Katherine Pierce Monday. She graduated from Kaufman High School in 1960 and attended SMU for two years before transferring to the University Of Texas in Austin where she received a degree in education. Her first teaching assignment was in Bay City, Texas. After teaching there for three years she moved to Houston, Texas and took a job as a fundraiser for the National Jewish Hospital. During that time she met her first husband, Morry Sher, who was a marketing manager for Unitoyal. She sold real estate for awhile and worked briefly for Gulf Oil Corporation. After the couple divorced she moved to Atlanta and began an employment agency and married Gordon Hines who worked as a fundraiser for the Arthritis Foundation. After this marriage Dolores returned to Kaufman and found that teaching was indeed what she was intended to do. She was elected Teacher of the Year by her peers. She retired from the Kaufman Independent School District and lived the remainder of her life in Kaufman. She loved animals especially her cats and all of nature. Keeping the birds in her yard fed was especially gratifying for her. She enjoyed playing the piano and she and her sister often performed at different functions with Dolores accompanying her sister who would sing. She was preceded in death by her parents and both former husbands. Surviving Dolores and cherishing her memory are her sister Marilyn Monday Wright, her niece Allison Davis Harridge and husband Jonathan, nephew Tyson James Davis and life partner Cecilia Landeros, grandnieces Ashlyn Marie Davis and Adalyn Ruby Harridge and grandnephew Jonathan Pierce Harridge. She will be missed by many and her spirit will always be with us.
