She was born and raised in the Sleeper community and earned her education there. She was a devoted homemaker to her family and also helped her husband in his construction business. She later worked as a custodian in area schools. Dollie was raised in the Pentecostal faith and followed that belief throughout her life. She always kept up with her church and her family. In her spare time she enjoyed bowling, listening to music, and playing Bingo. She loved her family dearly and especially liked having time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Dollie was a loving mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, aunt, and was a caring friend. We celebrate her life and know that her family and friends will hold tight to the wonderful memories she made for them during her lifetime.
