Dolores “Dee” Schraf, 84, passed away on Friday, December 14, 2018 at her home in Edgewater, MD. Her courageous battle with cancer ended peacefully with family at her side.
Born on March 14, 1934 in Hillside, MD to the late Eleanor and Russell Dennison, Dolores graduated from St. Cecelia’s High School in 1952 and married the late James Robert Schraf the following year. They began their marriage outside of Fort Buchanan in San Juan, Puerto Rico where James was stationed with the U.S. Army. After returning to the United States, Dolores began working in the personnel department at Andrews Air Force Base. She later joined the Prince George’s County Public School system where she completed a 23-year career and was awarded the Outstanding Classified Employee in 1985.
An avid fan of all local sports teams, Dolores was a regular attendee at games when the Redskins, Capitals and former Senators were playing. She enjoyed traveling extensively, volunteering, gardening, working in her yard, and playing and winning at Keno. She also loved listening to country and western music. Her greatest joy though came from spending time with her family and having a devoted Bichon Frise always at her side.
Dolores is survived by her daughter, Kathleen Suthard of Shady Side, MD; two sons, James (Jean) Schraf of Edgewater and Richard Schraf of Salisbury, MD; two sisters, Eleanor Howell and Judy Morton, both of Odenton, MD; three grandchildren, Leonard Jay, Katherine and Richard (Hannah); two step-grandchildren, Matthew and Christopher; a great-granddaughter, Violet and many adoring nieces and nephews.

Friends are invited to celebrate Dolores’ life with her family on Thursday, December 20 from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Kalas Funeral Home, 2973 Solomons Island Road, Edgewater. Mass of Christian Burial will be offered on Friday, December 21 at 10:30 a.m. at Holy Family Catholic Church, 826 W. Central Avenue, Davidsonville, MD 21035. Because burial is being scheduled privately at a later date, the family would appreciate donations in Dolores’ memory to Holy Family Catholic Church in lieu of flowers.
