Sylvia Kathleen Smith was born on November 29, 1930, in Bardstown, Kentucky, the first of twelve children. She attended Bethlehem Academy in Bardstown, Kentucky. Dolly married her high school sweetheart, James Fogle, in 1949, and they continued to share that love for almost 74 more years. They moved to Louisville, Kentucky, in the early 1950’s welcoming and raising three daughters. She was a loving wife, mother and grandmother who loved nature, gardening, flowers and animals. Dolly was happiest as a homemaker to her children which only continued with the birth of her two beloved grandsons. She was a proud self-sufficient woman, a wonderful cook and worked to always provide a loving home. Dolly was well loved by family and strangers alike as shown by the many people she met when helping at her daughter’s restaurant.
