She was under much loving care, by her cousin James P. Fink for several years.

Dolly was preceded in death by her parents, Peter and Hildegarde (Krieger) Hunger; her sister Emma H. Novak (late Joseph), and her sister Marie H. Sepede (Late Henry).

Dolly will be remembered by family and friends for her love of doing ceramics, gambling for fun, shopping, and traveling to New York City for theater events. Above all, her most cherished times, were with Joel on many cruises they made together over several years.

Dolly worked for over 30 years as an office manager for an insurance firm.

She will also be remembered for her generosity in life and her gold heart in reaching out to those in need. She was at Joel's side throughout their entire life together and was his strongest support. She was a caretaker of her mother-in-law, her mother and several aunts over most of her life.

Dolly had a distinct trait for always sharing her view on most topics and it added much humor to many lives. She will be missed by those who knew her over her long life.
