  12. I met Dolly when I was only 22 and she was funny, beautiful, and a really awesome person. So many memories of her at “Earlville” mixing the hamburgers and prepping food. She always looked out for us kids. Later I met her kids and remain friends with them still. They are just like her! What a great family she raised. Heaven has received another Angel. Enjoy your new wings Dolly.

  13. To all of the family, your mom always had to keep us in line when we were kids and that was no easy task. I’d like to think we created fond memories which would put a smile on her face later in life. While each of our lives has put all of us on different paths and infrequently seeing each other, its memories that will always keep our hearts warm and smiles on our face. Sorry we couldn’t attend the services, but we will remember her and we wish many blessings on your entire family. God Bless, Rock, Peg and Teague Emery
