Dolly enjoyed spending time with “the girls” on several bowling leagues, one of which was called the Thursday Night Swingers. Dolly was a big Elvis fan and carried a picture of him everywhere she went in her purse. She also loved gardening and took great pride in sharing the beauty with her grandchildren. Dolly also cared deeply for animals. She spoiled her dogs, as well as all the “family” pets. Dolly was a giving woman leaving a mark within the hearts of many.

Dolly leaves behind a daughter-in-law Julie Johnson, eight grandchildren, many great grandchildren, and one great great grandchild. She will be missed dearly by her dog, Elvis.
