Marie Jacqueline (Janeiro) Dolan was born February 3, 1946, to Alfred and Emily Janeiro in Lowell, Massachusetts. She graduated from Lowell High School in 1963. On February 24, 1968, she married Kenneth Dolan at St. Anthony Catholic Church in Lowell, MA. Shortly after marrying, the couple relocated to Minnesota where they resided through the years in Columbia Heights, Marshall, Milroy, and Lucan, eventually retiring back in Marshall. They raised two children, Brenda (Dolan) Baker and Ron Janeiro Dolan. Marie helped support her family working at a variety of jobs. During the course of her working career, she was employed at Wang Laboratories in Massachusetts, Honeywell in St. Anthony, MN, the Milroy Elevator, and Schwan’s Sales Enterprises in Marshall. She was also active in her parish at St. Michael Catholic Church in Milroy. Her hobbies were bowling, golfing, ice skating, and as a young child, she enjoyed beach time with her friends at the ocean. Marie’s family was the most important thing in her life. She loved supporting her children in all they did and found her greatest happiness and joy being Grandma to her nine grandchildren.
