My condolences to Greg, Laura, Danny, Wayne, spouses of Dolly's children and all her grandkids. Loss is never easy regardless of knowing it's imminent and my heart goes out to all of you on the loss of your Mom/Gramma.

Our deepest sympathies to your entire family. Your Mom, grandma and great grandma will never be forgotten. I had the privilege of knowing her for almost 50 years. She sang at my brothers funeral and there wasn't a dry eye in the chapel. She touched so many lives throughout her life and was truly a beautiful person inside and out. God has another angel and she is at peace. God Bless all of you. xoxo

I am so sorry to hear we have lost Dolly. My father reminisces about the day they met 70 years ago. She was such a beauty and ended up being a great friend for many years. Her and Ross were there for us when we needed them and we will be forever grateful.
