Dorothy passed away peacefully on May 5, 2021 at the age of 98. She was born in Denver to Benjamin and Barbara Shipp and spent most of her early life in Erie and Longmont, Colorado. She met and was married to Robert A. Quist in 1952 and soon made the move from Longmont to Denver. Dorothy continued to work at Safeway and retired after 30 years of service. Robert passed away in 1995 and Dorothy continued living in the home they shared for 43 years. She lived in her home independently, for the next 26 years until 4 days before her death. Dorothy enjoyed her house and yard. She also loved her family and the time spent at family celebrations. She also enjoyed crocheting and working crossword puzzles. And she definitely had a soft spot for the many pets she shared her life with, more recently, a quarter horse named Hank and a Big Yellow Lab who kept vigil by her side as she made her journey Home.

She as preceded in death by her husband, parents; sisters, Mary, Betty & Grace and brothers, Leo & Harold.

Survivors include her daughter, Barbara, many nieces, nephews as well as Lucas and Hank.
