I helped to take care of her for a few years as her caregiver! She shared some cooking secrets with me? We enjoyed sitting outside
Me, her, and her dog, sugar!
Rest in peace! Mrs Dorothy

Aunt Dorothy visited our home often when she came back to Arkansas. We also made many trips to Wichita to visit her. Still remember packing her up in a u-haul to move her back to Arkansas after 40 years of living in Wichita. Carol Lee went with us so you know it was a fun trip!
