She attended the one-room schoolhouse in Millmont and her first two years of high school at Lewis Township High School, then graduated from Mifflinburg High School in 1943. Dolly went on to earn a degree in Cosmetology at Sunbury Beauty School, and owned/operated a Beauty Salon. After that Dolly worked for several years in the office of Drs. William Musser and Richard Ward in Mifflinburg, followed by an administrative position at Evangelical Community Hospital, and as House Mother for the School of Nursing at Williamsport School of Nursing.

She enjoyed home visits by the parishioners and Pastor Bill when she was no longer able to attend services. \n\n\nDolly was the loving centerpiece of our family, there was never anything more important to her. She loved a good party, a glass of good chardonnay (with ice), bingo with good friends, and trips to casinos. She loved to cook and bake PA Dutch recipes, and sharing her kitchen with her daughters.\n\n\nShe lived at Village Square apartments for 20 years and enjoyed many special friendships there.\n\n\nWhen Dolly's health declined, she received wonderful care from Guthrie Corning Hospital staff and physicians, and when she could no longer live independently, she moved to Absolut Care at Three Rivers. There she found another loving family in all of the staff, who took wonderful care of her and loved her like she was part of their own family.\n\n\nA memorial service and interment will take place in Mifflinburg, PA in the early spring.
