I was one of the volunteers at the Harwich UMC Thrift Shop who enjoyed working in the sorting room with Dottie. She so enjoyed seeing what donations had come in and, for some, imagining the occasions when they were worn. Dottie was always pleasant and positive.

Dottie was always a lovely lady and always greeted everyone with a smile, making sure they left her table full from all her sampling. She will be greatly missed by all the customers she interacted with. 💗
