Obituary for Dorla "Dolly" Arksey

Dorla "Dolly" Arksey was born in Flint on November 19, 1940, to Ernest and Beatrice (Phillips) Keefer.

Dolly married Richard April 8, 1961. They enjoyed 56 years of happy marriage. Dolly was well known around Lapeer as a Top Selling Real Estate Agent for Coldwell Banker, but her greatest pride was creating Pappy’s Pub, which she owned and managed for 8 years.

Dolly is survived by her husband Richard, son, Dennis and wife Cindy, brother, Leroy, two grandchildren, one great-grandson and her other son, (in-law) Kenny Hammerberg. Dolly was preceded in death by her parents and daughter, Denise. Anyone who was lucky enough to get to know Dolly knew what a wonderful, considerate and thoughtful person she was. Dolly did not want a funeral and preferred to be remembered as she was in life. Memorials may be made to the Parkinson’s Foundation in Dolly’s memory.

Arrangements for cremation have been entrusted to Lynch & Sons Funeral Directors-Capstick Chapel, Lapeer, Michigan.
