Dolores Gentine was the matriarch of the Gentine family. Married to Sargento co-founder Leonard Gentine, she was the love of his life and the company’s heart and soul. At Christmastime, she would gather her five children and make family favorites: shrimp cocktail, mock chicken legs and of course plenty of cheese appetizers. Her children fondly remember pressed linens on the table, presents under the tree and giving thanks to God for their blessings. Dolores carried on these traditions with her grandchildren and even great-grandchildren, making the most out of life reaching the age of 103.
