Margaret Smith Dolan

December 20, 1921 — March 10, 2022

Margaret Smith Dolan, age 100, of Paris, TN, formerly of Grahamsville NY, went Home March 10, 2022.

Margaret led a full life with enthusiasm. She had a genuine love for people and showed it by how active she was in her church and community. Margaret attended Ellenville High School, NY.; George School, PA; Guilford College, NC; and SUNY New Paltz, NY. She found service with her career as the Wallkill Central School Attendance Supervisor. After 50 years in Wallkill she moved to her cabin in the woods in Grahamsville where friends and family loved to visit. She volunteered at the Daniel Pierce Library and contributed items and stories to the Time in the Valley Museum. She was a well-traveled, faithful, tough, and self-sufficient lady who will be greatly missed.

Margaret is survived by daughters, Janet (Charles) Brower of Fairbanks, AK, and Sally (Ronald) Thomas of Paris, TN, and son, James (Susan) Dolan of Lock Haven, PA; 12 grandchildren; 27 great-grandchildren; 3 great-great-grandchildren; nieces, great-nieces, and great-nephews.

In addition to her parents, George B. and Kathryne Smith, she was preceded in death by her former husband, Laurence G. Dolan; one sister, Gertrude S. Kohler; and one cousin who was like a sister, Florence McGregor. Her other sister, Harriet S. VanHassel, followed Margaret in death the following day.

A celebration of life will be held later in Grahamsville, NY.

In lieu of flowers memorials may be made to: Daniel Pierce Library, Time in the Valley Museum, American Friends Service Committee, or the Grahamsville Reformed Church.
