On June 15th, 2024, Dollye’s friend, Deborah Dibble, wrote of Dollye: “My friend Dollye Elizabeth Amstrup passed away today: 6/15/2024.

Her dog, Bella, was her dream dog and with my help she was able to walk her when she was 87 years old and for many more years.

Dollye was my biggest fan. In another month she would have had her 99th birthday. We shared a love of knitting and crochet, we spent many happy Saturdays doing that together. Rest in peace my friend, you’ve earned it.
