Dolores Iwan, age 89 of Chesterton, IN, passed away peacefully on March 11, 2020.

She was born on May 30, 1930, to Sanford and Dorothy Glawe of Chesterton.

She was preceded in death by her devoted husband, Walter Iwan, and is survived by sister Carla Callahan (Joseph), daughter Susan Baugher (Philip), granddaughter Kathleen Peffers (Adam), and great-granddaughter Eleanor Peffers.

Dolores worked at US Steel, the County Clerk’s Office and retired from the law firm of Harris, Welsh and Lukmann. She spent many hours volunteering for Westchester Meals and the Westchester Public Library. She was a member of the Chesterton Women’s Club and was the longest serving member of the First United Methodist Church of Chesterton. Dolores loved her family, friends, horses, and the many dogs she owned over the years. Her other passions included music, cooking and travel. She was certainly a community treasure.

There will be a private burial on Monday, March 23, 2020, and a Celebration of Life will be scheduled at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be given to the Westchester Meals program, 225 W Lincoln Ave., Chesterton, IN, 46304.
