Dolly has been a special friend for many years. I enjoyed hearing the many stories of her travels, children, and grand children. When we had special events at Beth Hillel, she was one of my favorite people to visit. She will be missed by so many friends.

So very sorry to hear about Dolly's passing. When I was in graduate school in Chicago in the 90s, she was one of my "angels," who I knew I could call on for everything from moral support and encouragement to a great meal! She will be sorely missed!

May her memory be for a blessing!

A lady of great wisdom and poise.
Always maintained a healthy attitude toward life despite many adversities
Deeply loved being a caregiver to so many
Rooted in family and in faith
A true "woman of valor"
