Dance was always a part of Dora’s life.  She and her twin sister, Nora, were often asked to perform before civic groups and clubs throughout their early years.  This included taking part and winning statewide competitions including the Pan American Student Forum. After graduation, she moved to Maryland with her sister, Frances, and began teaching with the Prince George’s County School System where she taught physical education and health. Her other activities included coaching the volleyball team, sponsoring the pompoms dance team and directing school plays, musicals and dance performances.  While teaching at Duval High School, she met and married her husband, Daly.  They had two sons.  Their home was always filled with friends and family.  She was considered a “second mom” to many of their sons’ friends. She and her husband were always a part of their sons’ numerous activities. She also taught at Crossland and Gwynn Park High Schools. She was booster and active PTA member of Surrattsville High School where her sons were students. Following retirement, she returned to Laredo where she reunited with friends and became involved with the Kidney Foundation of Laredo, the Laredo Animal Protective Society and the Pan American Round Table where she offered her skills as a dancer and teacher in helping to present special programs. She is survived by her sons Gilbert R. and Edward D. (Susan); her sister Maria Teresa Ramirez (Ramiro); her brother-in-law Robert H. Wolfe (Agnes) and many loving nieces, nephews, grandnieces, grandnephews and godchildren.
