On Sunday night, June 21, 2020, our beloved mother, grandma, great-grandma and matriarch took her last breath and ascended into the hands of our Lord Jesus Christ. Born August 29, 1927 to the late Frank and Irene Whalen. Beloved wife of the late Daniel P. Doles. She is survived by her children; the late Daniel P. Jr. (Katie), Gary (Mary), James (Mary), William (Kelly), Dorothy (Mark) and Cathy; her grandchildren, Jeffrey (Jill), Daniel P. III (Marla), Christopher (Carrie), Tricia (Michael), Jamie, Tyler, John, Megan, Frank, Kelsey, Danielle, Mark, Gretchen, Timothy, Brittany (Robb) and Brian; her loving great-grandchildren, Bella, Jimmy, Danny, Anthony, Danielle, Sara, Justin, Dominic and Emma; and her siblings, Hilma (the late Jerry), Frank (Lucy), Susan (Mickey), Kathleen and the late Patricia (John). Betty was a hard working individual who always found time to help others. She enjoyed her time with her Social Security Club "Joy" and Harper College "Sisters." Through out her life she would always find the positive side to a situation but will always be remembered for her sayings "The first hundred years are the hardest" or "I'm going to box your ears." In lieu of flowers, Betty has asked for either Mass cards or donations to St. Joseph Home for the Elderly, 80 W. Northwest Hwy., Palatine, IL 60067. Due to the Covid-19 restrictions, masks must be worn in the funeral home and there will be 50 attendees allowed in at a time. Visitation Friday, June 26, 2020 from 2-7 PM at Smith-Corcoran Funeral Home, 185 E. Northwest Hwy., Palatine. A Funeral Mass will be held privately at St. Thomas of Villanova Church. A graveside service Saturday, June 27th at 12 PM at Queen of Heaven Cemetery, Hillside, IL. For information, call 847-359-8020 or www.smithcorcoran.com.

Aunt Betty was a giving person. She was good to us growing up. Aunt Betty and her sisters were there for us after my mom died. They came out for communions, confirmations, and graduations. They made us feel cared about and loved.
I went on camping trips with Aunt Betty and Uncle Dan. Aunt Betty was always cooking for us.
My Aunt Betty let Barb and I come over and stay to have fun with our cousins.
We had good times with Aunt Betty and Uncle Dan up at the cottage. Sleeping overnight on the screened in porch and of course Aunt Betty cooking again.
Lots of very happy memories. Aunt Betty a very special person who will always be remembered in our hearts.
I think her kids are the best. They took such great care of their mom.
My thoughts and prayers are with them. Terri

Aunt Betty was the best! Completely unforgettable. I'll always remember the great times up at the lake with all of the Doles kids growing up. Best peanut butter and jelly maker ever! Love and hugs to all that loved her, Eileen Knox

Dear Doles Family - I am so sorry for your loss. Your Mom was always so kind to me. I still treasure the little angel figurines she gave me many years ago. She had a great sense of humor and I know you will all miss her wonderful hugs. God Bless and Take Care! -- ME Sullivan
