Dolores Lucy Wnek was born on December 13, 1927 in rural Thorp, WI, the daughter of Peter and Elizabeth (Nowobielski) Wnek. She was raised on the family farm and received her education at area schools, graduating from Thorp High School in 1945. After completing her education, Dolores worked in the office at the Blue Moon Cheese Factory, in Thorp, for 2 years. She was united in marriage to Stanley J. Arciszewski on October 11, 1947 at St. Hedwig's Catholic Church in Thorp. After their marriage, they took over Stanley's family farm, in the Town of Reeseburg, and farmed until retiring in 1986. They continued to live on the farm until 2008, at which time they moved to Morgan Plaza in the City of Thorp. Over the years, she became a part of that "close-knit family", and forged many friendships there. Dolores moved to Traditions Assisted Living in January 2020. Although her stay at Traditions was short, she was making it her home and enjoyed participating in the activities there.
She had many interests, including quilting and baking, especially making pierogi's. But most of all, Dolores loved spending time with her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Dolores was a member of St. Bernard-St. Hedwig's Catholic Church and its' PCCW. For many years, she wrote the Bobb's Mill news column and the Morgan Plaza news column for the Thorp Courier.
