    Dollie Younts will be missed ! Soft-spoken yet witty, charming, ladylike, and beautiful inside and out, Dollie was a great role model for many of us. I’m thankful Melvin married her and brought her to Fountain Inn some 67 years ago. She contributed much to this little city and left a beautiful mark throughout her life. Thinking of you all during these sad days and wishing you comfort and peace. With love and sympathy, Jennie Gault
