    God blessed me with Aunt Dolly who was so very special to me and all my family. She was kind hearted, generous and always, always LOVED! She never greeted you without a hug. Her laughter was infectious! Even though we lived states apart, I knew she carried me in her heart. I love you Aunt Dolly and you will NEVER be forgotten.

    To her family-Praying for comfort today and future days. We love you all!

      Oh how we love to see Aunt Dolly and family come to the mountains. Aunt Dolly was always loving and caring. Looking out for family by preparing special meals for us. It was always an open invite at dinner time. After dinner, on to games. More than likely Rook. We cherish these memories. Much love to our family.

        The 1st time I met Dolly was when she knocked on my door back in 1979. I was so excited with what she showed me in the bible that I studied with her twice a week. I was baptized January 21, 1981. Dolly lived the fruit ages of the spirit like no buddy’s business (at least in my opinion she did!) To my girls, she was ‘Aunt Dolly’. Without a doubt, she will missed by many!

    • Michael Apicello says:

      Aunt Dolly was always so good at getting everyone together to enjoy life and each other’s company. Whether it be squeezed in gleefully at her home in Cleveland or out in the spaces of The Big D campground, she always was full of love, life, laughter, and dancing.
      I’ll always remember you and all those childhood memories with family every time i hear The Stylistics!

        My Grandma…Where to even start?! One memory that will live on for me forever, one night I stayed over your house(we would grab cushions from the couches to make me a bed on the floor and grandma would sleep on the couch next to me) Well, grandma LOVED Panthers! She kept a statue of one on a speaker that was right next to my bed…well, I kick in my sleep and I ended up knocking over this statue and the ear of the panther put a gash in my forehead..I woke up screaming and grandma sprung into action grabbed a cloth and stopped the bleeding. After she said it’s not too bad and that if I look at it the surprise, and trauma will go away..sure enough she showed me in a mirror and all my fears disappeared. Such a small memory is something I will cherish and always remember how much you loved me. I love you granny! The blue man and I are doin work out here in your memory! ❤️

  4. Linda Krueger says:

    So many memories with my Aunt Dolly from teaching me to play pool, camping , dancing, swimming in her back yard pool, singing laughing, her hugs and love when I was sick or crying our trip to North Carolina in the Mountains Aunt Dolly was so much more than an Aunt to me she was a Mother to me and was always there to listen or talk to me … She was one of the kindest , loving persons to all that knew or didn’t know her … I Love You So Very Much Until We Meet Again ….

  5. Karina & Lonny Rapalo says:

    I am so thankful to Jehovah for a friend and adoptive grandma like Dolly. She came into my life at just the right time. She was supportive and a fine spiritual example for me. It was such a treat when she’d bring her Puerto Rican rice to the meeting for me! Dolly used to tell me she wanted a Jaguar for a pet in the new world ???? I look forward to seeing her again, healthy and smiling! We are praying for the whole Clinton family… may you have comfort and have all of our virtual hugs. We love you all!

  6. Mary Ellen says:

    My favorite memory of Dolly is our time in the Ministry together door-to-door, Our Bible Studies at Franklin Plaza, and our Return Visits. We always took a break at Starbucks. Dolly was a very faithful sister. She loved Jehovah and loved to talk to others about him. I will miss her, but I know we are one day closer to seeing each other again! Thoughts and Prayers are with all the family.
