Los Angeles, Calif., Sep 21, 2011 / 12:31 am (CNA).- Dolores Hope, the widow of entertainer Bob Hope and a supporter of many Catholic charities, was a Catholic of “deep abiding faith,” Archbishop José H. Gomez said in tribute to her life.
“Both the entertainment world and the Church have lost a woman of profound faith, gifted musical talent, and dedication to the betterment of peoples world-wide. The death of Dolores Hope leaves a huge void in Southern California,” he said.
“May she now enter into that eternal life and light prepared for her by the God whom she loved so fully and deeply.”
Mrs. Hope died Sept. 19 at the age of 102.

In this day and age, she certainly made her mark quietly.
I always gave them credit for class. He for his clean although risque troop shows. Her for her USO work.
An amazing couple.
World’s a little poorer without them.
