I am so sad to learn of Dolly’s passing. Reggie Johnson is my dad and grew up on Pride Road near the Allain’s lumber yard. Lots of stories and memories. Dolly was such a wonderful lady.

My wife, AnneMarie, and I will keep her and her family in our thoughts and prayers.

I was blessed to have Dolly as my Godmother, as she and my mother Barbara Clune have been friends since they were 10 years old. She could find the humor in any situation, and was always kind and open with me. Dolly, may you rest in peace, St Francis is welcoming you, I am sure. Deep peace, deep peace, With love, Suzanne

So sorry to hear of the sudden passing of Dolly. I knew her from Victoria's Hair Parlor where she was a client, I had the pleasure of doing her hair when her stylist was not available. She loved to chat about her dog, and how she would take him for his nightly ice cream. She was such a happy, funny and likable person. We would always get Christmas card with a picture of her beloved dog. She always had treats in her pocket for Pooie. (the shop pooch). I will remember her with fondness. Sympathy to her sisters and family.
Rest in peace. Thoughts and prayers, Phyllis

Dolly was a dear friend and classmate of my mother, Marilyn Gagnon. Dolly would call my mom frequently to chat when she was living with me towards the end of her life. After my mom’s death I kept in touch with Dolly for awhile. I enjoyed her stories about her little dog Casey. So very sorry to learn of her passing. She was a kind and caring lady.

I met Dolly in 1960, when I was a 17-year-old graduating from high school, came to CMG Hospital to work in the pathology department for Dr. Branch. Dolly worked in the lab and blood bank. She was the first person I met and was the kindest, most caring person. I immediately liked her. I worked there until 1968. I have thought of Dolly many times over the years. She touched my heart. God has received another angel.
