We would like to send our condolences to the family of Mrs. Dollie Ann Cole who passed away on August 24th. Mrs. Cole is the mother of Joe Cole, Treasurer and Vice President of the Michigan Animal Adoption Network.

Dollie Ann Cole, age 84, passed away on August 24, 2014. Mrs. Cole, widow of the late Edward N. Cole, former President of General Motors Corporation, was a respected businesswoman, serving in leadership roles on numerous national and local boards including on the board of PBS, Project HOPE (World Health Organization), The Smithsonian National Air & Space Museum, the National Corvette Museum, HPSC, a national leasing and finance company based in Boston, National Captioning Institute for the Hearing Impaired, National Academy of Sciences Presidents’ Circle, and the 100 Club of Central Texas, a charitable organization established to support the families of officers killed while serving the public. Mrs. Cole was also a member of the Corvair Society and was a Distinguished Woman of Northwood University.

Mrs. Cole’s interests included historic preservation, attending auctions and she was a great supporter of projects in and for Texas, including the Settlement Home for Children. Mrs. Cole also worked as a Senior Editor for Curtis Publishing. Outspoken, bright and attractive, Mrs. Cole set a high profile standard for the auto executive wife when she arrived in Detroit in the early 1960’s. Mrs. Cole commanded the same desk from her Ranch in Lockhart, Texas that her late husband occupied on the legendary 14th floor of the General Motors Building, buying it as a surprise for her husband when he retired. Known as a “force of nature”.

Mrs. Cole worked tirelessly for charities protecting children and animals. Mrs. Cole is survived by her four children, William Jefferson McVey, III, Anne Cole Pierce, Esq., Robert Michael Joseph Cole and Edward N. Cole, Jr. and by seven grandchildren, Alexandra C. Pierce, 2Lt. Matthew C. Pierce (currently serving in the United States Army), Dr. Christina A. Cole, Adam H. Cole, Rita B. Cole, Edward N. Cole, III, and Gunnar M. Cole.

Mrs. Cole will be greatly missed by her many friends and her family.

In memory of Benny from Benny’s family.
Way back in May 1996, my son and I stopped into a Pet Supplies “Plus” in Rochester Hills to pick-up some cat food. You had several dogs there that Saturday afternoon, but we were drawn to Ben, a 2 ½ year old Shepherd mix. I contacted you about him, and long story short, you brought him to our home and he became a member of our family. It was with breaking hearts that we said good-bye to Ben two weeks ago. He was diagnosed with degenerative myelopathy earlier this year, and battled it bravely, but by the beginning of September it became clear that he was suffering and struggling. We gently let him sleep on September 22. I hope you remember him – you called him Gentle Ben. He brought us so much joy and laughter and love. “Thank you for the work that you do, and for deciding that we were the best family for Ben. He was certainly the best dog for us.” Linda
