Memorial: Donald Coulter Dolle

ASPEN – On Sunday, Sept. 11, at 5:30 p.m., a memorial service to celebrate the life of Donald Dolle will be held at the Maroon Bells amphitheater, followed by a barbecue dinner.

Known by many as “Uncle Don,” Dolle was a highly decorated sergeant in the 1st Marine Division and served three years in intense combat during the Korean War.

He and his wife of 37 years, Norma Dolle, moved to Aspen in 1971, bought the Victorian house next door to Norma’s twin sister, Marge Babcock, and started the Snow Queen Lodge, which is still family run today.

Don worked at the old sawmill in Lenado and then spent several years mining silver with Jim Babcock
