Dolly was born on Nov. 6, 1927, in Milwaukee, to Walter and Mary (nee

Dolly worked as a checker at the A&P Grocery and Floral Design. She enjoyed helping others, volunteering with the Cedarburg Woman’s Club and St. Vincent DePaul Society. Dolly always looked forward to the Cedarburg Senior Center teddy bear sewing group on Friday mornings.

She was also a longtime, devoted parishioner at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Grafton.

She is survived by her children, Mark (Deb) McGaver of Cedarburg, and Patricia Daly of Spring Valley, Ill.; grandchildren, Ryan McGaver, Shawn Daly, Kevin Daly, Brendan Daly and Kyle Daly; and sister-in- law, Bernadine “Aunt Bird” Maeder. Dolly is also survived by special friends, Lynda and Don Wagner; nieces, nephews and many friends and caring neighbors.

Dolly was preceded in death by her parents; husband, James McGaver; and brother, Ralph Janusz.

A very special thanks to Lauri, although your time together and growing friendship was short, we appreciate all of your thoughtfulness and patience, and to the kind and caring staff at Cedar Springs Health and Rehabilitation.
