Dolores Siscar Cruz, was a faithful wife and widow of Mariano Vichuaco Cruz (+); loving mother to Rita Siscar Cruz, Elba Siscar Cruz, and Noel Siscar Cruz; and dear grandmother of Enrique Miguel “Ikkey” Siscar Cruz and Noelle “Ella” Lingad Cruz. Dolores lived to a ripe age of 85 years, had a long career operating a family bakery business in Nevada and California before moving to Washington state in mid 2012. She immigrated to the United States in the early 1990s after retiring from the National Institute of Science and Technology (now the Department of Science and Technology) in the Philippines. She was a B.S. Pharmacy graduate of the University of the Philippines. Like Mariano, Dolores will be cremated on February 5, 2018 to be witnessed by immediate family members.
