a personal note, Dolly was the eldest of seven children
born to first-generation Americans with Lebanese
and German immigrant parents. She cherishes family
roots in Bogalusa, La., but relishes ever-expanding
horizons. Having traveled widely, she once lived in
Turkey and Germany as a freelance magazine writer
and photographer. Dolly enjoys exploring multiple
cultures within the U.S. (from ethnic groups to the
circus) and the world and appreciates
"the unique and the universal aspects of each
human being." She deeply values family, friendship,
vigorous and authentic communication, continuous learning,
personal/spiritual/ethical development, and visual
beauty, both natural and human made. Leisure interests
include people, the arts, antiques and collectibles,
creative home decorating, serene beaches, and gorgeous
mountains--all reflected in her own stories!
community activism has included work for public libraries,
women's careers, rational dialogue and common ground,
community and neighborhood development, and scenic
preservation, including a successful campaign to keep
cell towers off waterfronts. Her Unitarian Universalist
church, ethical and theosophical
inquiry, a small working writers group, book
club, and regular
pool exercise soothe her free spirit, inquiring mind,
and aging body.
Dr. Ron Berthelot, her husband of 45 years, was a partner
in Berthelot Consulting until his physical and cognitive
decline from probable Parkinson’s Disease, dementia, and
then a bleeding stroke. Their last years together and the
aftermath is the focus of Dr. Dolly’s memoirs in progress,
which she hopes may be useful to others.
Dolly continues to cherish her antique, bayou-view arts and crafts bungalow
under giant mossy oaks, while experimenting with living and working elsewhere.
