She was born October 17, 1934 to Claude and Elva (Hines) Walker in Pleasant Prairie Township in Southern Minnesota at the home farm. She went to school near Taopi, MN at a small country school, then on to high school in Adams, MN where she graduated in 1952. She went on to further her education to be a Beauty Operator.
In Taopi, MN is where she met her husband Loren Fisk and on December 5, 1953, they were married in Astoria, Oregon where Loren was stationed in the Navy. Then they moved back to Southern MN where Loren went to trade school to be a Sheet Metal worker.

During the time they were in Bloomington, she enjoyed the local garden club and raised African Violets. She also started doing daycare at home. They lived there until 1978 when they moved to Phoenix, Arizona for Loren’s health. In Phoenix, Dolores did daycare for small children, and has kept in touch with many of the families over the years.
