zora dolores linke

Z. Dolores Linke, 91, of Eaton, Ohio went to be with Jesus on Friday, January 15, 2021 at Oakley Place in Greenville, OH. She was born January 6, 1930, in Toledo, Ohio to the late Byus H. and Margaret P. (Beavers) Beasley.

Dolores graduated from Whitney Vocational High School in Toledo after which she obtained her beautician license in 1947. She married shortly thereafter and had three children. She worked at Sears for many years at Christmastime. She later worked for The Lion Store in Toledo from 1972 until she retired in 1992.

She was a Girl Scout Leader for many years and in her last months spoke of it often. She loved baking cookies at Christmas and was a wonderful seamstress. She also loved her many travels, Germany, Alaska and her “bucket list” sail boat ride, to name a few.

Once she moved to Eaton she became a very active Grandma cheering on her grandkids in all their many activities. She also became a member of Eaton First Church of God and grew in her love and reliance on Jesus. She made many special friends, including her new neighbors whom she grew to love.

Dolores was a loving and giving mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and cousin to her family, here in Ohio and many other states. She loved her family. During her life her greatest joy was being there for her children and grandchildren.
