Dolly I. Duvall

Fort Littleton, 71
Dolly I. Duvall, 71, Fort Littleton, died at 8:05 p.m., Monday, November 16, 2009 at the home of her daughter and son-in-law in Fort Littleton.

She was born in Saxton, on October 15, 1938, the daughter of the late John and Nevada (Thomas) Bollman. She was the widow of Ralph Duvall whom she married on March 10, 1965. He passed away August 2, 2008.

She worked at Kosher Empire in Mifflintown, Seaton Leather in Saxton and retired from Cove Shoe in Martinsburg, Pa. After retirement, she was known for making quilts and donating them to surrounding nursing homes. The last quilt was given to a soldier at the Walter Reed Hospital whose injuries were sustained from the Iraq War. He had no family of his own and it was her way of letting him know he was loved for his great sacrifice.

She is survived by daughters: Rebecca R. Airhart of Mt. Union; Ruth Lorrine Jackson of Opelika, Ala.; Mildred R. King, Fort Littleton; sons: Michael B. Airhart of Wilksboro, Pa.; Donald P.
