Dolly also loved bird watching with Buddy and taking drives with no particular destination. She was an amazing cook and loved hosting large family dinners.  Dolly was an excellent swimmer and was known for swimming the width of Marlborough lake where she grew up.  Dolly’s family and friends meant everything to her.
