So many memories through the years. Picnic's in Florida hot dogs and chocolate cake, times at the cabin, spending the night. The love she gave to us, our children and our grandchildren will never be forgotten. Your love and laughter will always be remembered. Love and miss you Debbie

When I was a kid Aunt Dode was so much fun. I remember her taking us to watch the fireworks in Auburn Heights. We parked so close the ash would drop into her convertible around us. You couldn't get a better view!!! She had a great sense of humor and was game for most everything. One of her favorite thing to do was pack a picknic and head to the beach which we did often in Florida. We think of that every time we go to her favorite spot on the Island. Those will always be some of my best memories. She didn't have to say it but I knew she loved me and I loved her right back. I will always treasure having her in my life. Love you Aunt Dode!

I first met Dorthy in the early 80's. I had become friends with her youngest daughter. From the very first time, she made me feel welcome. Her warm spirit and motherly instinct was the thing that struck me. Over the many years that followed, she adopted me into the Audet clan and made me feel like I was family. Always quick with a smile. And that constant twinkle in her eyes. In their home, I felt at home. My deepest sympathy to the entire family. I hope you all can take comfort in knowing just how many lives she touched, always with love and compassion. I consider it a blessing that I for one, got to know her.

My Aunt Dode was the fun Aunt who made every day things fun and exciting. Aunt Dode drove a flashy convertible with a spot light. She once took me to the drive-in theater for of course an Elvis movie. Aunt Dode let me do spotlight tag during intermission, a moving spot that they would put on the screen while waiting for the next movie. We had a big bag of popcorn, hamburgers and soda. She let me drive her fancy convertible in Fredric by the cabin when I was about twelve. I loved spending time with her as a child and as an adult in Florida. Aunt Dode was a great playmate for us and for our children. I will sorely miss her.

Oh, what do I say about Dortha? Her smile.....yes, her smile and her warm heart--those were what always stood out to me. She always had such a welcoming spirit about her. She reminded me so much of my own mom in so many ways. My deepest condolences go out to the family. You've made many beautiful memories together that I know will always be cherished. I know the trumpets played when she entered Heaven. She was, indeed, pure loveliness in every way.......
