Dolores Olive Boschert was born March 17, 1999 to Mike & Julie Boschert in St. Charles, MO. She graduated from Duchesne High School in 2017 and then Lindenwood University with a Paramedicine Degree in 2020. She worked for CHEMS (Christian Hospital Emergency Management System) as a Paramedic and was based in Jennings on one of the busiest ambulances in North County. She graduated from the St. Louis Fire Academy in June of 2021 and was exploring jobs in a Fire department. She loved her job, family and friends.

She is survived by Mike and Julie Boschert (Mom & Dad), six sisters – Elizabeth (Andrew) Haberberger, Jackie (Kenneth) Woodruff, Rosemary (Corey) Bryant, Teresa (Michael) Foulks, Carolyn (Chris) Chitava and Maggie Boschert, 10 nieces and nephews with 2 more expected, as well as Grandmother Genevieve Luetkenhaus-Holt
Dolores was the sixth child and the first not born in the month of September. She was a St. Patrick’s baby and was destined to be a little different. She was the most driven, focused, competitive, and fun person you would ever meet.
She attended St. Cletus Elementary and had a class of awesome athletes and friends. She enjoyed playing soccer, basketball, volleyball and enjoyed being a Comet. She carried nick names of Dorkus, Martian and Olive Oil among others and LOVED everyone. Dolores LOVED it and smiled through every name she ever had. It was also somewhere in grade school that she decided she wanted to become a firefighter and paramedic – which defined her life.
She went to Duchesne High School where she became “Dolo.” Swimming was her forte and she still holds seven school records for swimming. Dolo was always comfortable in her skin in the tough years of high school and was friends with everyone. She exceled at swimming and enjoyed every minute of waking up at 4:15AM for practice. She worked at Blanchette Park pool for the summers and was always around water.
High school graduation brought her to Lindenwood. She graduated in three-years with a degree in Paramedicine. Her Lindenwood experience was awesome and even though a mile or so from home – we rarely saw her. Maybe for laundry or a dinner – but she was invested in friends, education and fun.
Upon graduation at 21 years-old she quickly earned her EMT and Paramedic certifications and went to work with CHEMS (Christian Hospital Emergency Management Service). While working she attended the Fire Academy in 2020/2021 and upon Fire academy graduation moved to a position at a Fire station as a Paramedic. She was starting to look actively for a fire position, but LOVED her CHEMS team and work.
Dolores was a respected part of the CHEMS team. She recorded a TRIFECTA in one of her 24 hours shifts (she delivered a baby, had someone pass away, and brought someone back to life) and was so proud of the pins she earned. She earned the honor of having her name emblazoned on an ambulance.
“Dolo’s” legacy was to have fun with friends and family, make people feel loved and to be a bright light in the community.
