Dollyne Bohn

Obituary of Dollyne A. Bohn

Dollyne Ann (Schork) Bohn, a beacon of strength and positivity, passed away on Friday, March 08, 2024 at the age of 63, surrounded by the love of her family in Garnet Valley, Pennsylvania. Born to Mary Jane and Edward Schork on Christmas Day in 1960, Dollyne's life was a tapestry of dedication, love, and service.  

A graduate of Penncrest High School in 1978, Dollyne excelled in many different job opportunities, ultimately finding a fulfilling career in healthcare. Dollyne loved helping others, and would continue to do so even after her breast cancer diagnosis. She became a pillar of love and wisdom to those in her many breast cancer support groups, always ready to lend advice, an ear to listen, and some times a card or thoughtful gift to any who shared her journey. She was a proud member of the Delco MRC, a graduate of the Citizens' Police Academy, a participant in The Grace Project by photographer Charise Isis, and received a Certificate of Special Congressional Recognition for her outstanding and invaluable service to her community.

Above all of her accomplishments, she was most proud of her daughter, Jennifer, and grandson, Griffin. Any who were close to her would tell you that her grandson was a great source of joy in her last year of life, and she would speak of him whenever given the chance. She was a lover of the beach and traveling, even into the late stages of her diagnosis. Within the last year of her life, she made several trips to the beach and to campgrounds with her beloved husband, Harvey, and even travelled to Disney World during their 100th anniversary as part of a long term dream to return. One of her fondest wishes was to be able to take her grandson to the beach and see his "toes in the sand," as she was fond of saying. A dream her daughter has promised to make good on.

Dollyne was also a lover of animals. Aside from being a doggy mother to Oskar (the wiener dog), she couldn't help herself from leaving treats out for the many animals that graced her backyard. Her favorites were the two foxes she would leave eggs out for every night, and carrots for the numerous bunnies. She also enjoyed tending to her garden of flowers, and occasionally relaxing at the end of a long day with a Hershey's chocolate porter. 

Predeceased by her parents and her younger brother, Robert, Dollyne's memory is carried forward by those close to her. Chief among those is her beloved and endlessly supportive husband, Harvey. While they were married in 2013, the origins of their relationship trace all the way back to high school, and when they finally reunited all these years later, they knew it was meant to be. Also carrying Dollyne's spirit is her daughter, Jennifer; grandson, Griffin; son-in-law, Nathaniel; Aunt Bernie and Uncle Truman; father-in-law, Harvey "Poppa B"; sister-in-law, Debbie; best friends and honorary sisters, Judy and Janet; her many cousins; and her dog, Oskar. 

 A Celebration of Life for Dollyne will be held in the future. 

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in memory of Dollyne to METAvivor ( for metastatic breast cancer research, support and awareness, or to Last Chance Ranch (, which focuses on rescuing and rehabilitating equines, farm, and domestic companion animals.
