  1. Dear Mrs. Dolson, I am so honored that I had the opportunity to with you in September. You were still fill of mischief doing what you wanted. You touched so many lives. Thank you for allowing me to tag along. You are loved. My heart goes out to Sherry, Jim, and Melanie. Sleep well. Peggy

  2. I had the pleasure of getting to know Violet at Kimball Farms and I will miss her greatly. She never failed to bring a smile to my face whenever I saw her. She was a wonderful lady. I hope that memories of happier times will offer some comfort in your times of sorrow.

  3. I am devastated to learn of the death of Mrs. Dolson whom I have known for more than 1/2 a century. She was a fabulous person and a fine teacher admired by all at Riverbrook School. Mrs. Dolson was born 6 days before my late mother and we are all at a great loss by her passing. While I am grateful that she enjoyed a full life and an abundance of years, the sense of loss is not lessened in the least. She was a member of “the greatest generation” that weathered the Depression and saved the world in WWII and we are the lesser now that she and others of her generation are gone.
