All of us lucky enough to know Dollie, know what love tastes like. I hold many fantastic memories at her kitchen table with multiple baked goods to pick from. Chocolate Chip Meringue squares always won. I am thinking of everyone lucky enough to have known and been loved by such an amazing woman. May you hold your memories dear. As I know I always will. Thinking of all of you during this time.

Kathleen McGuire and Family.

Our condolences. My mother, Madi Kelly, was a good friend with Dolly. As a child, I remember visiting not far from our home. I remember Joe too but I was quite young as my dad was in the mix too. God bless

Gary, Debbie and family, please accept our deepest and most heartfelt condolences.

Aunt Dollie was a wonderful woman who left us with some of the best childhood memories. As children, we would drop by on Sunday afternoons for a visit. She always served the best cheese and crackers with an endless supply of squares and cookies! But above all, was the excitement of rifling through the kitchen “junk drawer”! A treasure trove of gadgets and toys collected over time from cereal boxes! When it was time to leave, we were allowed to pick one toy each. The joy! The excitement! Such fond memories. Aunt Dollie was such a big part of our lives...sadly, the end of an era. You will be truly missed.

Our sweet Dollie was one of a kind and a second mother to many of us. I was always welcomed with a cup of tea and a square and a good chat.
My condolences to the McGuire family.
Many thanks to Debbie for her tireless care and devotion especially during this past year as her designated caregiver.
I know Dollie appreciated it.
We’ll miss you Dollie. XO

My deepest condolences to the entire McGuire family.
My late wife, Teresa, & I had the pleasure of meeting Dollie at St. Margaret Mary’s Church. Dollie & Teresa enjoyed many conversations over the pews before (& during!) Mass, laughter always being part of the equation.
Dollie was a lovely lady , & a true pleasure to know.
