Dolores Winklmann Obituary

Dolores Marie Winklmann, of Harwick, passed away Tuesday, Dec. 26, 2023, on her 90th birthday. She was born in 1933 in Chicago to her late parents, Marie Schneider and Ernest Swedlund. Early on, her parents were divorced, and her mother married her stepfather, Bernard Raske. The family followed construction work during the depression and traveled to the eastern United States following work. She lived for a time in Flushing, N.Y., Rome, Ga., Birmingham, Ala., Cincinnati, Ohio, Columbus, Ohio, Charleston, W. Va., Bellefonte, Pa., and Washington, DC. They finally arrived in Pittsburgh in the late 1940's, settling there when her stepfather passed a month later. She graduated from Schenley High School, in Oakland, and worked at the water authority in Wilkinsburg. She married George A. Winklmann Jr. in 1957 and spent the last 62 years of her life in Springdale Borough and Springdale Township. She was a member of St. Alphonsus Church/Guardian Angel Parish, working with the CCD program and as a member of the Mother's Club there. She was a volunteer at the Springdale Public Library for several years. She's been to the top of Pike's Peak; driven on the Autobahn; boarded the Queen Mary in New York harbor; saw the real Queen in London (from a distance, of course) and ridden a cable car in San Francisco. Aside from her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband of 56 years in 2013, and is survived by two sons, Michael (Peggy Hockenberry) Winklmann, of Aspinwall, and Daniel Winklmann, of Springdale Township; two grandchildren, Evan (Kelly) Winklmann, of Houston, Texas, and Adam Winklmann, of Atlanta, Ga.; and one great-grandchild, Vivian Anna, of Houston.
