Obituary for Bernadette Pauline Dolan (Auger)

Bernadette Pauline Dolan (nee Auger)
March 11, 1943 – September, 10, 2022

Bernadette, Dette, Sparky, Big Bernie but most notoriously known as our Mom and Mama, decided to make her angel status official on Saturday, September 10th, 2022 at the age of 79. There wasn’t much this incredible woman couldn’t do! Stubborn and persistent to a fault, she created the most incredible gardens, sloughing hundreds of pounds of soil, screening and interlock brick to create an amazing backyard oasis! Over the years, this became a gathering place for family and friends to share stories and an abundance of laughs, when these stories took a turn and her sick sense of humor shone through. Another gathering place was the “Dolan kitchen” where she dominated as the maker of the “rainbow roast,” an all-around amazing cook, baker and hostess. Our Sunday dinners will never be the same!

The memories she helped create and the lessons she imparted will live on through her husband Bill, her children Kelly, Trish, Erin and Sean, their spouses and her cherished grandkids Chad, Zachary, Joey, Matthew, Ryan, Adam, Anne, Daaron, Leah, Kaylee, Hayden and Tamara, her four-legged rescue dog and best friend! She will be greatly missed by her brother, Ronald Auger, sister Mary Ann (Ray) and her many in-laws, nieces and nephews.

A Private Memorial Service will be held at Armstrong Funeral Home. If desired, memorial donations may be made to Team Chelsea or a charity of your choice. Online condolences or your favorite memories may be shared at
