Dollie B. Ball Shakelton, 91, of Pennsville, NJ went to be with the Lord on Friday morning, December 1, 2023.
Born in Morgantown, West Virginia to the late Jefferson Hess and Wilda Hess, she was the widow of Charles L. Shakelton and Virgil A. Ball. Dollie had been a resident of Salem County for over 60 years and prior to that she was a resident of Star City, West Virginia. Dollie spent many years working in the banking industry, secretary to Sam Taylor, and working for Salem County Transit. She was also a licensed real estate agent. Dollie enjoyed preparing taxes for H&R Block in her spare time. She retired from Salem County Transit in 1994. At the center of Dollie’s life was her service to God and dedication to the Deepwater United Pentecostal Church where she spent many years involved in the Sunday School Bus Ministry. Dollie loved to sing and lift up praises to God as worship leader. Her most recent place of worship was New Life Worship Center in Pennsville, NJ. She took every opportunity to tell everyone that crossed her path about the goodness of God. Her love and kindness were felt by all and will be greatly missed.
Dollie is survived by her daughter, Debbie Cooper (Billy) of Pennsville; three step-daughters, Teresa Killingworth (James) of Franklinville, Regina Henderson (Rondy, Jr.) of Rosenhayn, and Junell Lily (Robert Westgaard) of Millville; three granddaughters, Rebecca Holland (Lane) of Elsinboro, Melody Gossage (Stephen) of Indiana, and Dollie Griffith (Steven) of Pennsville; seven step-grandchildren, six great-grandchildren and seven step-great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her sisters, Gloria Roberson and Patty Panico, and brother John Hess.
