Carol Jean was born a Christmas baby on December 25, 1935, in New Rockford, ND, the daughter of Edward and Anna (Kubzik) Heinle. Growing up she attended school through the fourth grade in New Rockford before moving to Belfield where she graduated from high school in 1953. Following graduation, Dollie waited tables at Franks Cafe and Pete’s Cafe, later working for Tony’s Electric. On September 21, 1954, Dollie married Emil Taraba at St. Bernard’s Catholic Church in Belfield. The couple was blessed with three children, Tim, LeeAnn and Tracy. Dollie and Emil ran a dairy operation for 27 years while raising their family on a farm northeast of Belfield. In late 1997, they retired and moved into Dickinson. Dollie was a very talented seamstress and worked in the fabric department at Walmart for ten years. She loved to bowl and was a league bowler for many years, a 4-H leader for years and a member of the Belfield Homemakers Club. Dollie found pleasure in gardening, canning and reading. She was an active member of St. Bernard’s Ladies Auxiliary and worked with the Dickinson Cursillo Movement. Dollie will be forever loved and missed dearly.

I sure have missed Dollie over the years. I loved working at Wal-Mart with her. She will be missed for sure.

I used to work with Dollie in the fabric section of Walmart! We got along great! I was there for just a short while...but I loved her words of wisdom...most of all her spunky nature...we always seemed to have a great time when we worked together! Sorry for your loss. I will always remember Dollie!
