In Memory of Delores Forman

Dolores Forman 1935-2010. A dear and beloved friend has passed away. She will be missed. "In a recent phone call with her, she spoke of the long history we all have together and how DNA has united us in our work. She talked about missing her precious daughter Rhonda, who died at age 23 from juvenile hemochromatosis. Rhonda would have been 50 years old this year. We talked about her beautiful and talented daughter Cynthia and Engram, Dolores's only grandchild and her beloved husband Robert. Dolores was a gentle, kind woman who was willing to reach out and help anyone in need. " Cheryl Garrison, Executive Director, Iron Disorders Institute

Dolores is survived by her husband Robert (Bob), one daughter Cynthia, one grandson Engram, a sister, Era Mae Adams, and two brothers Irvin Brannon, and Wendell Gene Brannon.
