Dorothy lived a long and blessed life as a devoted wife, loving mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend. She was a gracious lady who loved cooking, gardening, bingo and cards. But most of all, she loved spending time with family and friends. Dorothy was a shining example of caring for family regardless of convenience and circumstance and for this, we will forever be grateful.
