Obituary for Dolores "Dee" A. Uhen

Dolores “Dee” Uhen, 93, of Burlington, passed away Sunday, March 10, 2019 at Aurora Memorial Hospital of Burlington.

Born in Cogswell, North Dakota on November 26, 1925, she was the daughter of Lawrence and Therese (nee Fritscher) Kummeth. She spent her early life in Cogswell where she graduated from Cogswell High School. She graduated from Mercy School of Nursing in 1947 and went on to get her bachelor’s degree from Marquette University, graduating in 1951.

On June 14, 1952, at Our Lady of Mercy in Cogswell, North Dakota, she was united in marriage to Donald Uhen. Following marriage, they made their home in Cudahy before moving to Burlington in 1953. Dolores was a registered nurse at Burlington Hospital. She worked in the maternity ward, helping with the delivery of hundreds of children in the Burlington area from 1970 to 1988. She was a member of St. Mary Catholic Church and a 60-year member of St. Mary Adult Choir. She was a founding member of what is now the Tri Parish Prayer Network and was instrumental in starting the Harmony Club in Burlington. Dolores enjoyed bridge, traveling and crocheting. She also loved spending time with her children and grandchildren.
