Dolores "DD" Winfield, a hilarious and resilient Chicago native who conquered bingo halls and laugh battles with equal gusto, completed her earthly journey on February 9, 2024, just shy of her 64th birthday.
A living testament to the Proverbs 31:25 verse, "She is clothed with strength and dignity, and she laughs without fear of the future," Dolores was a beacon of joy and wit, her laughter echoing in the hearts of all who knew her.
As a sports enthusiast, Dolores could recite baseball stats with the best of them and predict football plays like a pro. She was known for her ability to turn any ordinary day into a comedic romp, often using her razor-sharp wit to keep everyone around her in stitches. The world was her comedy club, and she was the smart and funny headliner.
Her love for her family was as vast as the universe. She was the loving mother of Rutha Wilson, CW Wilson, Latoya (Tacarra) Thompson, and Levell Winfield, who survive her, along with a host of grandchildren: Jahrel, Alayah, Jared, Mekhi, Riana, Undra, and Nevaeh.
Also left to cherish her memory are her siblings Diana (Charles) Hentz, Ronald Winfield, Louis Winfield, and David (Jeanne) Winfield. Dolores was preceded in death by her parents, Willie Mac and Beatrice Winfield, siblings Jackie Winfield, Gerald Winfield, Annie Johnson, and Christine Thomas.
Dolores' resilience was legendary. A transplant from Chicago, Illinois, and Greenville, Mississippi, she made her home in South Bend, Indiana. She lived there for over a decade, creating a community of laughter and love. This love extended beyond her immediate family to include friends and neighbors alike. Dolores never married, but she was committed to her family, making sure her children and grandchildren knew they were loved and cherished.
