Dorothy M Kroeger
May 29, 1924 – July 26, 2018
Dorothy Faith Kroeger (née Martinson) lived her 94 years as a dedicated follower of Christ and a devoted wife, mother and friend. Dorothy passed peacefully from this life to the next on Thursday July 26 in at the Edgewater Pointe Estates in Boca Raton. Over the course of her life, Dorothy developed many deep and enduring friendships and was an active member of her church on Long Island. She was known for her hospitality and was a marvelous cook who took great pride in feeding and entertaining everyone who entered the home she shared with her husband Robert of 56 years and her four children. She also loved gardening and we envision her now in Heaven in the cool morning air, planting and tending flowers.
Dorothy and Robert moved to Florida in 2004. Robert, a World War II veteran, passed away in 2007. She is survived by daughters Dorothy Hall (husband Dennis), Carolyn Briol (husband Mark) and sons Robert (wife Elaine) and James (wife Nan). She is also survived by 10 grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.

Dot's husband Bob was inspirational of my personal return to church and of course Jesus. Dot and Bob made many trips to our home for Bible study. Bob and Dot were inspirational in their continued devotion to God and His Son, Jesus. Dot always had a loving smile.
