After completing her novitiate, she began her teaching ministry in Detroit, Michigan. In 1963, Sister Dolores began teaching the St. Francis Mission in Greenwood, Mississippi.
Sister Sever loved the people of Mississippi and taught in the public and Catholic schools there for 37 years.
With her many talents and desire to serve others, She was often called upon from various schools to substitute for teachers and sometimes even as a principal. She also became an instructional supervisor under Title I to help the poor.
“My greatest enjoyment was the years I spent working with teachers and helping them in the classroom. I will always treasure the close friends I made, both in the school and at the Immaculate Heart of Mary Church in Greenwood. The years in Greenwood were truly rewarding,” states Sister Dolores.
Sister Dolores retired in 2011 and currently resides at Villa St. Joseph on the Marymount Congregational Home campus. She celebrated her 60th jubilee with the Sisters at Marymount Congregational Home on April 11, 2015.
