Dolly was one of the kindest honest person I know. Such a great classmate and friend. Willing to do anything for anyone the list goes on. I know she will be missed dearly by all of you and her friends. Try and remember that she has no pain and that God only takes the best. Like someone said there will be many quilts in heaven.

Cary and Carmen Hart extend sincere condolences on the passing of Daline, “Dolly.” She bowled on the same women’s league as I did. Both Cary and I just recently worked with her on the BHS class of 70 reunion committee and enjoyed her sense of humor and appreciated all her help in the planning. May she rest in peace and hope that good memories of her bring comfort to your family

So sorry for you loss

Thoughts and prayers for all.

I only just met Dolly a year ago this month. She very generously welcomed me and other family members into her beautiful home. It did not take long for me to learn that she was willing to serve others even when it wasn’t easy for her. She was an amazing cook and put so much love into the food she prepared by making sure she made all the favorites for her loved ones. The love she poured out on her family was evident all over her home and every day I was with her. I am truly heartbroken for all of her family at this time of sadness. Thank you, Dolly, for all the kindness you showed to me. Priceless gifts that I will always treasure.

I was the secretary at BHS and worked with Dolly for a few years. I remember her smiling face well. My thoughts and prayers to your family.

So sorry for your loss Nic! My prayers are with you and your family.

Heinert family,
My deepest sympathy to your family with the passing of Dolly. I new Dolly thru my daughter´s, Nevaeh, dance classes with Brynlie. She loved you all so much and was very proud of her family, always sharing all the news of their activities. She always had a smile and loved to visit about our families when ever we would see each other. May your memories bring you joy, and God´s Grace bring you peace.
