She left shortly after the death of her husband, Larry Dollinger, who was buried four years to the date of her death.

She was a most loving mother of four children: Brian Matthew Dollinger and his wife: Lori Ann, of Myerstown, Pennsylvania; Laura Jean Dollinger of Kansas City, Missouri; Daniel (Danny) Joseph Dollinger of Cherokee, Kansas; and Nichole Lynn Voyles and her husband: Ryan Matthew, of Kearney, Missouri.
