Mama is also preceded in death by her husband, J. B. Doles, daughter Linda Doles, infant son Michael Doles, along with six sisters and three brothers.
She is survived by five children.

Also survived by ten grandchildren, twelve great grandchildren and three great great grandchildren. Mama was a Christian and a member of Fort Cooper Baptist Church in Inverness. Mama’s love for her Lord and her family are some of the qualities she will be forever remembered. “The Great Protector” mama was always first to stand up for any of her family in need. Always the sweetest little thing but tough when she needed to be. She is a permanent part of our hearts and will live forever.
