      In her younger days, Dolly was part of a circus. She was a trapeze artist and a rope twirler. One of her outfits is even on display at the Circus World Museum in Baraboo. Family was most important to Dolly. She loved time with her children and grandchildren, and going for scenic drives. She loved horses, watching Pelicans and other animals. She also enjoyed gardening, reading, and thrifting. She loved wearing colorful clothing and the family encourages all visitors to wear bright colorful clothing to the visitation. Dolly was a friendly and kind woman whose ability to make friends quickly led her family to say "She never met a person she didn't know".
