Dolores was the matriarch of a large lrish Family (Donnelly). She lived and breathed for her children, grandchildren, cousins, nieces, and nephews. Her love for her family and friends can only be matched by the kindness she expressed to everyone she met. Dolores was the librarian at Saint Joseph's University for an astounding 42 years. The number of students, faculty, and staff that she befriended over the years was remarkable. Dolores had a gift for making people feel comfortable and important because she genuinely cared and listened when you were in her presence. Dolores was devoted to Saint Joseph University and the Saint Joe's Men's Basketball Team. She was a season ticket holder since 1980. Dolores supported her Hawks whether they were winning or not. She was truly a faithful fan! Dolores McCaughan, lovingly known as "Mommy Doe," will be missed by all those who knew and
loved her. Mommy Doe's legacy will live in all of our hearts forever.
