KNOX — Mary “Marilyn” I. Doliber passed away on Nov. 1, 2022, at her home in Knox. She was born to Malcolm and Lois Dore on Feb. 27, 1930. Her daughter and son-in-law, with help from her other daughter and her son, made it possible for Mary to stay in her home until her journey in life ended, which was her greatest wish.

Mary had been a crafter for over 70 years, creating dolls, doll clothes, quilts, stuffed animals, elves, and a wide range of Santa Clauses. She gifted her handmade crafts to a wide range of friends and family throughout her life. She was a regular at all local crafts fairs for many years.

Mary was predeceased by her husband, Henry Doliber Sr.

She is survived by her children, Fred and Pam Sewell, Gary Sewell, Sheila, and Chris Muldoon, Karen and Randy Survant and Robby and Karen Sewell, along with her grandchildren, Kelly, Amy, Abby, Stacey, Tracy, Amanda and Chad, and her sister Cheryl and John Greenwood. She had several great-grandchildren. She also leaves her very special neighbors, Ralph and Dee Dee Doughty.

A private celebration of her life will be held with her family and friends at her home. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to your local animal shelter.
