She was born on June 13, 1945 in Nampa, Idaho to Frank and Frances Jemmett of Melba, ID. Dolly grew up on the family farm. She loved taking care of the farm animals. In 1963 she graduated from the Melba High School with honors.
Dolly loved math and became an accountant. Through her book-keeping and tax service, many people came to her as clients building a lasting relationship and in that way Dolly became a part of so many people's lives.
Dolly was working at Idaho Trout when she discovered that she had breast cancer
in 2009. She began chemotherapy and endured several surgeries, all the while trying to stay positive. She was a strong person with an enduring spirit and refused to let the cancer slow her down or interfere with her work.
In February 2013 Dolly became ill as the cancer returned. She once again underwent treatment and in May she chose to stop the chemotherapy and put her life in God's hands.
She passed away peacefully at her home within the loving care of her niece, Shanna Marie Rowland on June 16, 2013.
Dolly is survived by her only son, Andrew Joseph Jemmett; her two brothers, Anthony and Frank Jemmett; her sister, Josephine McDonald; her niece, Shanna Rowland; and nephew Nicholas McDonald.
