Obituary for DOLLERLINE RAWLINGS

Dollerline "Darlene" Rawlings, 70 years of age, passed on Tuesday, October 3, 20 17 at Hospice of the Chesapeake in Pasadena, MD. She fought a long 5-year battle of Multiple Myeloma Cancer until her body surrendered from this incurable disease.

Dollerline is her legal name, but she was known as Darlene. She was born January 1, 1947 in Prince Frederick, MD to the late Mary Cora Magruder. Darlene 's biological mother died in 1950 and she was raised by her Aunt and Uncle, the late Mervin and Joethel Jones. She was the oldest of 3 children. Darlene was educated in the Calvert County Public School System and graduated from Brooks High School in 1965.

Darlene married Vernon Rawlings in J 966 and three children were born from this union. Darlene professed her life to Jesus Christ at an early age. She attended St. Edmonds United Methodist Church in Chesapeake Beach, MD during her childhood and was a member of the choir and other church groups. She loved the Lord and praised Him at all times. Darlene later joined Restoration Temple Church in Annapolis, MD in 2008. She was immediately baptized and began serving on several committees, always helping others. She was nominated and appointed Mother of Restoration Temple Church on May 14, 2017. Darlene served the Lord in many ways during her life. She always had her van loaded with children to bring to church. A few of these children are adults today, but they will always have a piece of Darlene in their heart for bringing them to the house of the Lord.

Darlene was a chef who had a deep passion for cooking. She prepared a wide variety of foods from different countries. Her specialty was soul food and her famous bread pudding with lemon sauce. She started working at Rod-N-Reel Restaurant in the mid 70's and later worked at Maryland Country Caterers. Darlene eventually started her own catering services, D&S Catering. She catered many weddings and other events, earning a customer rating of 5 Stars.

Darlene loved to read her Bible, praying for and with others, spending time with family, laughing and always wearing a smile on her face. She was a loving and caring person, devoted wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and friend, always thinking of others first. "To know her was to love her."
