LANCASTER - Jeanne F. (Pink) Doll, a woman of strength, diligence, and a steward of the Lancaster community, passed away peacefully on Monday, June 29, 2020 at the age of 90.
Jeanne was born in Dodgeville on May 1st, 1930, and grew up on the family farm with her
mother and father, Albert and Mildred (Lind), and siblings Bill, Clem, Richard, Ann, Joan, and Judy. Later, she graduated from Lancaster High School with the class of 1948. She continued her education at Mercy in Dubuque where she earned her nursing degree in 1951. Nursing was her passion: she worked relentless hours, cared for her community, and was driven by the need to
provide for others.
Soon after, she met the love of her life, Laverne “Shot” Doll. On October 3, 1953, they
became one in marriage. Together, they raised three children Bob, Mary, and John. Shot
and Jeanne instilled their core values of determination, volunteerism, and commitment to
community into their children. As a family, they built a life they loved on West Elm Street in
Their work ethics forged together to establish Coast to Coast, which soon became their
very own Doll’s Hardware Hank. In a hardworking and loving partnership, the couple served the
community for 27 years. Upon retirement from the business and nursing, Jeanne chose to
continue her legacy of servantship by volunteering with the American Legion Auxiliary, St.
Clement quilters, Grant County taxi dispatch, Grant Regional Health Center, and many other
local organizations. Other hobbies she enjoyed included baking, cooking, gardening and even
upholstery: she restored everything from car seats to barstools, including those at the VFW.
Jeanne is survived by her children: Bob (Beverly) Doll, Mary (Martin) Mumm, John (Deneen)
Doll; twelve grandchildren; and six, soon-to-be seven, great-grandchildren. In addition, she is
survived by her sister, Joan Sanders; sister-in-law: LuAnn (Tom) Kratochwill; brothers-in-law: Jim White and Roger Leibfried; many nieces and nephews.
Jeanne enjoys a heavenly reunion with Shot, her parents, her brothers and sisters: Bill
Pink, Clem Pink, Richard Pink, Ann White, and Judy Carleson, and her sister-in-law Nancy
Leibfried. She will be forever remembered for her service to the Lancaster community, love for
her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and her humorous telephone greeting “Doll
