I met Dollie when I was searching for a new church.
I was being led in several ways to attend a Calvary Chapel service. I walked in the door & there was Dollie smiling & she said, "Welcome to Calvary Chapel" with such a remarkable joyful enthusiasm that I felt I'd found my new church home.
We became fast friends & enjoyed gardening & lunches & doing things around the church together & prayer. She laughed so easily I'd sometimes find myself laughing at things I'd previously not thought of as funny.
One thing about Dollie that I admired & hope to be able to learn to be like was she didn't care who she was helping as long as she was helping. She found lots of ways of doing this, too, no judging others, just serving Jesus.
Dollie stopped by unannounced if she was even near our house, saying we were just like family to her. I'm so glad of that.
I'm sorry Covid stopped me from going by to see her in the last year.
It was a difficult last year for her with (I'm sure) a lot of physical pains as it often is for those souls taking the long way home.
However, death is a servant & when Jesus sent him to gather our dear sister home, I know she requested to fly around & around the sun, laughing, then she saw Jesus standing by, awaiting her. I'm happy for her, even with tears in my eyes.
No more sorrow, no more worry, no more bad news. And hello to all those she loved & has missed for years & years.
To her children I say what her heart's constant cry was: (and I KNOW) be sure you live for Christ & make a difference in this veil of tears. If you have Jesus you will see her again & this is only goodnite, you'll see her in the morning, -- but if not, it's forever goodbye. Be sure.

I met Dollie about 24 years ago at Calvary Church. She was kind, witty, and always there to lend a helping hand. She was a truly strong prayer partner. I will remember her by all the colorful hats she wore every Sunday! She is now face to face with our Creator and is having a grand time. I do pray that the Lord of all comforts will be will you at this time.

Dollie is a wonderful friend and was a member of our church for many years. She was a devoted prayer partner and I was so thankful for the wonderful gifts that God gave her that blessed us all. She had a great faith in Jesus and was a wonderful encouragement to others to follow Him. Her sense of humor and her ability to connect with others was a shining example of Christ's love. Her love of her family was always foremost in her thoughts and prayers. I pray for the comfort of Jesus to lift their spirit during this time. I look forward to seeing Dollie and what a great union we will have.

Mom sure loved her Dad .. this was always a picture she enjoyed. I have pictures of things she loved to do, people she loved doing them with, people she loved to see and be around. So little time to put these things together to share with everyone. But I guess everyone that knew her would know that. Memories flood me at the rate of an open flood gate that I have yet to control ... so hard to put things in words right now. We loved her so very very much.

Only got to meet her a few times but she was such a sweet lady. She was a great prayer warrior. She will be missed.

Another favorite memory with Dollie, TJ , and the team was the annual volunteering to clean up San Antonio. This year was downtown painting at Market Square.

Will see you again someday Dollie. I will forever be grateful for all the insight you shared with me regarding plants. I will always remember trimming your large live oak trees on your front yard, what a challenge that was. RIP.

You are now home! Loved our excursions from Broadway plays to Scenic drives, riding the train from San Antonio to Chicago and driving through WI, to going to Movies (esp Clint Eastwood) and most of all plenty of good meals and conversation. Already miss your wisdom from Texas gardening and when to cut down the rose bushes to talking about the plans of your next family gathering, to discussing faith and goodness with my Sister in Christ. Miss and Love you always and send prayers for you, Jeri, Randy and Jeff to get through this most challenging time. RIP Dollie Landis.
