NEW YORK (AP) - Friends and dignitaries are remembering Dolores Prida, a New York-based writer who chronicled Hispanic life on stages, on opinion pages and in advice columns.

A memorial is scheduled Saturday at Hunter College in New York City, after a funeral Friday. A friend, Hortensia Amaro, said Prida died Sunday at 69 after complaining of feeling ill while heading home from a party for a Hispanic women's group.

The Cuban-born Prida wrote an advice column in Latina magazine. The column was called "Dolores Dice", or "Dolores Says."

She also was a playwright and wrote columns for the Daily News of New York and El Diario/La Prensa, a Spanish-language daily.

President Barack Obama said Prida "used her gifts to connect with people across the Latino community and around our country."
