Dolly Carr, age 78, of State College, formerly of Greensburg, passed away peacefully on Mother's Day. She was born on May 29, 1945, in Greensburg, before WWII ended, a daughter of the late William J. and Anna M. Baker Carr. Dolly was a pioneer in the fight for LGBTQ equality and environmental consciousness and spent her life advocating for social justice. Dolly's activism began in the late 1960s when she happened upon the Stonewall Riots and later participated in the first gay rights march, standing proudly for LGBTQ rights at a time when such activism was met with hostility and discrimination. She continued her advocacy by joining the first Women's March, championing women's rights and equality. Her commitment to the planet led her to participate in the inaugural Earth Day March, where she voiced her concerns about environmental degradation and the need for action. She was an avid Facebook user and used to post her score daily. Dolly worked as an artist at WPSX-TV, creating advertisements for newspapers and magazines. She was also a Notary for decades. She loved her nephews, Ritchie and Mickey and their families and, until recently, drove to Greensburg to visit them. Dolly enjoyed swap meets and collecting items from the 1950's and 1960's. Her artistic touch inspired her home dcor. Throughout her life, Dolly cherished her work-related friendships, none more so than her bonds with Andrea Eisner, which spanned over five decades. Their enduring friendship was a source of joy and support through life's triumphs and challenges. They connected every day with texts and calls. Danny and Cathy Moore fondly remember Dolly as intelligent, caring, and possessing a wonderful sense of humor. Despite facing mobility challenges in recent years, Dolly remained fiercely independent, relying on friends to accompany her on outings and engaging in lively conversations ranging from doo-wop music to politics. Dolly had opinions about everything; of course, her opinions were CORRECT! Those who knew her well remember fierce passion and her contagious laugh. Joy Vincent-Killian recalls Dolly's passion for MSNBC, politics, and Killian's homemade pickles. At Chumley's, Dolly held court at her favorite barstool, where she and lifelong friend Clem debated the world's issues with directness and passion. Ellen always saved her spot. Dolly lived her life authentically, never hiding her true self from anyone. Her courage, tenacity, and advocacy leave a mark on the lives she touched. Dolly will be deeply missed by her friends, loved ones, and all those whose lives she touched with her unwavering commitment to justice and equality. In her honor, let us continue the work she started and strive to build a world that reflects her vision of fairness, inclusivity, and compassion. Dolly was not in the closet about anything to anybody. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her sister, Margaret 'Jeanne' Carr Larry; and brother, William Carr. She is survived by two special nephews, Richard 'Buck' Larry (Susan) of Greensburg and Edward 'Mick' Larry (Christine) of Jeannette; great-nieces and great-nephews, Nolan Larry (Ashley) and their children Rylan, Jaxton and Rowyn, Kayla Washburn (Chuck) and their children, Charleigh and Teagan, Siix Mangery (Daine) and their children, Paiden and Dawson, Elizabeth Larry and Nate Larry. Her family would like to thank all those who were there for Dolly, including her neighbors, Pat and Diane who mowed her lawn and Sam and Amy.
