And the Deaconate Class of 1980/81 has gained another prayer warrior in the place of Enduring Peace and Perfect Joy and Pure Love , which she sooooo rightly deserves!!! Dot and Warren were a great asset to us in and since those many years ago of Deaconate formation. Dot was always kind, gentle, encouraging and yet a very strong Catholic Christian women. Though we haven't kept in direct contact with each other she, as well as all the members of that first deaconate class, will always be a important part of our lives and in our hearts always!!! To all of Dot's family: How Blessed you were to have such a loving and gentle woman as your mother!!! This world could use a million or more mothers with her qualities'!!! Blessings Enough!!!
