Barbara “Barb” Ann Treadway Dolinger, 74, of Hiddenite, N.C., went to her heavenly home on Wednesday, July 1, 2020 after a long battle with lung cancer.

She was born Monday, March 4, 1946, in Boomer in Wilkes County to the late Fred Alexander Treadway and Minnie Tedder Dingler and husband Orvilla “Shorty” Dingler.
In addition to her parents, Barb was preceded in death by three sisters, Betty Sue Tilley, Mary Louise Shumate, and Effie Jean Cline; one brother, James Fred Treadway; two nieces; one nephew; and four brothers-in-law who were like her brothers.
Those left to cherish her memory are her husband of 55 years, whom she loved dearly, Gerald James Dolinger of the home; daughter, Kimberly “Kim” Burke and husband Dale of Taylorsville; son, Timmy Dolinger of Hiddenite; four grandchildren, Dustin and wife Shanna Burke, Daniel and Keira Burke, and Dawson Dolinger; three great grandchildren, Mayson, Micah, and Cayden Burke; two sisters, Francis Brewer and Georgia and Hop Teague of Taylorsville; along with a number of nieces and nephews that she loved very much.
The family would like to say a very special thank you to Elizabeth Austin and the staff of Hospice of Iredell County.
