Dolores Mae was born on July 9, 1927, in Minneapolis, to Henry and Mildred (Thorson) Morberg. As a young girl, she moved to Argyle, attending the Argyle public school and teacher's training in Warren. On June 30, 1948, Dolores was married to Virgil Setterholm, the two making their home together on a farm east of Argyle. Dolores taught at two country schools east of Argyle, and later at St. Rose Elementary for many years. She was also involved with the summer migrant education.
