  • My deepest condolences to the family at this difficult time. I hope the words at Rev.21:4 bring you comfort. It says: “God will wipe out every tear from their eyes,and death will be no more,neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” Please know you are in my thoughts and prayers.

    I was just a young girl in the Mesa 9th Ward many years ago but I remember Dolpha well. My mother, Meryl Hale, was also very musical and I remember Dolpha coming over and they would work on music together for some church event. Usually mom was playing and Dolpha was singing. Even at a tender age I remember thinking what a beautiful voice she had. My deepest condolences to the family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time.

  • Dolpha was a gentle and kind woman, and very talented on the keyboard and as a singer! As a young boy I remember her playing the organ for several years in the 9th Ward with my dad (Floyd Denton) as the chorister. Dolpha got me started on the 9th Ward organ as well. Good memories. Miss her!
