Dola A. Yockers, 87, of Sheridan, WY died Monday, December 7, 2009, in Westview Health Care Center, Sheridan.
Dola spent most of her life in Salina, Kansas, where she was active with and enjoyed her Unity Church family. She loved singing and dancing. Dola participated in the senior choirs in Salina and the Sheridanaires in Sheridan. Weekends would find her chasse’ing around the dance floor. Dola enjoyed many crafts, daily walks and spending time doing yard work, so people would “know she cared”. The last ten years of her life, she was cared for by her daughter and son-in-law Cindy and Tony Gowler as Alzheimer’s disease took what it could from her. Dola resided in Westview this last year where she was in and out of rooms visiting and “cleaning” the railing.
Dola is survived by her two sons Stephen and Daniel Bishop; daughter Cindy Gowler of Sheridan; and her grandchildren.
Services will be this week in Salina, Kansas. Arrangements are with Champion Ferries Funeral Home.
