Dolle, Mary J. (24 DEC 1933 – 19 MAR 2015)

Mary J. Dolle, 81, Greenwood, passed away peacefully at her home on Thursday, March 19, 2015. A Mass of Christian Burial was held at 11 a.m., on Tuesday, March 24, at St. Mary’s Catholic Church, Greenwood. Rev. Steve Brice officiated. Interment followed at St. Mary’s Catholic Cemetery. Pallbearers were Anthony, Paul, Nicholas, Eric and Christopher Dolle, David Schreindl, and Nick Kitzhaber.

Mary Joyce Spooner was born on Dec. 24, 1933, in Harvey, Ill., to Amos Sr. and Lillian (nee Case) Spooner. She graduated from Ascension Grade School and attended three years of high school in Harvey, Ill. She married the love of her life, Kenneth R. Dolle, on Jan. 19, 1952 in Joliet, Ill. They lived in the Harvey area until 1971, when they moved to their home in Greenwood. Together, they had 13 children. Mary was a wonderful wife and mother, and took great joy in cooking, gardening, shopping and homemaking. In addition to caring for her husband and children, Mary worked in housekeeping for St. Joseph’s Hospital from 1981-99. She enjoyed her work outside the home and the many friends she met while at St. Joseph's, but her greatest joy was in being a wife and mother. Her children can attest to how unique she made each one of them feel and the gentle quality she had as a mother. Mary had a deep faith in God and relied on her beliefs to carry her through good times and bad. She loved to dance, especially to polka music. Once on the dance floor, however, it was difficult to get her off. She was kind to all who knew her, and loved animals and the simple pleasures of life.

She will be missed by her husband, Kenneth R. Dolle, Greenwood; her children, Karen (Jim) Mohr, Neillsville, Denise Carter, Neillsville, Anthony (Eloise) Dolle, Loyal, Margaret (Jay) Ouimette, Neillsville, Dawn (Matt Meyer) Ormond, Neillsville, Jeannine Spooner (Nick) Kitzhaber, Arden Hills, Minn., Paul Dolle, Menomonie, Nicholas (Janet) Dolle, Neillsville, George Dolle, Las Vegas, Nev., Eric Dolle, Greenwood, and Christopher (Carie) Dolle, Chilton; many grandchildren and great-grandchildren; and nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

She was preceded in death by her parents; two sons, Kenneth J. Dolle and Robert J. Dolle; six brothers, Sam, Joe, Bill, Vernon, Bob and Buddy; one great-grandchild; and many other relatives.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be directed to St. Mary’s Catholic School in Greenwood.
