Dorothy and I were co-teachers at the two-year old class at First Presbyterian Preschool for 10 years. She was my right-hand - always ready to comfort a crying child. She and I have shared letters all of these years on birthdays and Christmases. I considered Dorothy my own children's second mother. She practically raised them while I was in church or with the women's Bible study. She trained my daughter for her babysitting badge for Girl Scouts. Many of us remember Dorothy with love.
I just found out about her passing from another co-teacher at the preschool and wish I had known sooner. I certainly would have made the trip from Georgetown to Corpus Christ to remember my good friend.
My deepest condolences to the family.

Dorothy and I worked together at First Presbyterian 30 years ago. When I realized it was that long ago, I was shocked as it sure does not seem like it. I have wonderful memories of working with Dorothy. She always supported me and the school. She loved First Presbyterian Day School and touched many lives in a loving and professional way. I am grateful for the time I worked with her and want to express my sincere sympathy to her family.
