“Mothers don’t fear death. Their greatest fear is leaving their children in this world, knowing no one will love them like her!”
Dolores Ann Miller Street, 79 of Bakersville, NC, Buladean Community, passed away April 20, 2022 at JCMC in Johnson City, TN. She was born September 4th, 1942 in Johnson City, TN to the late Florian & Irene Miller. She was proceeded in death by her beloved husband Fred Street, loving daughter Evelyn Street Thomas, her adored son Florian Ray Street, courageous brother David Kent Miller, which are all happy to be in heaven together at last.
Dolores was an amazing woman who showed kindness to all. Being very family oriented she was most happy when friends and family were around. One of her joys in life was caring & nurturing children, especially her children and grandchildren. A faithful member of Middle District F.W.B. Church where she was a Sunday school teacher, provided the puppet shows in the Bible schools, faithful prayer warrior, and always opening her home up to everyone offering them a warm meal and friendship.
Dolores obtained a certification in Early Childhood development, working in head-start when her children were small. She loved to garden, cook, bake, and provide a loving home for her family. She was considered to be one of the best cooks in Buladean, being famous for her fried apple pies. The latter part of her life was caring for her late husband Fred who she had been together with since their first date, April 24th, 1970. Dolores and Fred were very devoted and showed what true love was. All this through their faith in God, they raised five children and helped with seven grandchildren. These grandchildren are now fighting over her last jar of strawberry freezer jam. Said jam is currently in her grandson Kyle’s closet.
