Carol M. Dolan passed away peacefully on October 8th, 2022 at the Valley View Center in Goshen, NY after a short battle with cancer.
She was a lifelong resident of Middletown, a graduate of the Middletown High School Class of 1968, and the Nancy Taylor Secretarial and Finishing School of New York City. She served as the 1969 New York State Grand Worthy Advisor for the International Order of the Rainbow for Girls, and was a member of the Eastern Star. She was the Administrative Assistant to the Chief of Police at City of Middletown Police Department and later held the same title at the Town of Mt Hope Police Department.
She is survived by her daughter, Kristin Dolan Peek (Jeff) of Charleston, SC; her daughter, Kasey L. Dolan of Middletown, her two loving grandchildren, Hailey Balkissoon of Bloomingburg, NY and McCutcheon “Max” Peek of Charleston, SC, her brother Richard “Rick” Milburn, Jr of Middletown, her niece, Kimberly Milburn of Middletown; and her nephew, Richard Milburn, III of New York, NY.
She is predeceased in death by her husband, William M. Dolan, a career firefighter with the Middletown Fire Department, and her parents, Richard W. Milburn and MaryLouise McCutcheon Milburn.
Family always came first with Carol and there was nothing she would not do for them. She spent her life taking care of others and was a “mom” to all. Carol loved her litter of cats and was never happier than when they were cuddled around her. She will be remembered for all the Halloween costumes she sewed for her daughters, niece, and nephew.
As she would often say at the end of a conversation, “well, that’s my story.”
The family would like to thank the staff at Valley View for the exceptional care she was given.
Services will be at the convenience of the family.
Arrangements by Cornelius, Dodd, and Connell Funeral home.
