Dorothy spent all her life nurturing and tending to her family. She applied pragmatic means when faced with the trials and tribulations of their needs. Dorothy cultivated knowledge to be well-educated, passing on to others the importance of reading, paying attention to the world-at arms length, and practicing proper etiquette. She instilled positivity, sense of humor, and compassionate values. Her life centered on her family, children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. She was a devoted daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother, grandma, oma, great grandma, aunt, cousin, co-worker, and friend: Dorothy meant a lot to a lot of people, and she took the role seriously. She loved us all–unconditionally.
