Sincere condolences for the loss of an amazing woman! She was the sweetest, kindest most patient lady. She always made you feel like you were one of the family, and what a wonderful family it is! I am honored to have known her.

To ALL the "Henneman" Cousins & Aunt Dorothy's amazing crew of Grand & Great-Grand Children:

We were very sorry to hear about the passing of Aunt Dorothy, but take solace in the fact she's up in heaven reuniting with her many friends and family, especially Uncle Bill. Unfortunately, distance prevented us from spending a lot of time together over the years, but the MANY trips to Buffalo for all the weddings will always be great memories we cherish and share together! Aunt Dorothy was ALWAYS smiling!!!

It was great spending time with Aunt Dorothy Labor Day weekend a few years ago eating wings, drinking beer, singing along and dancing with Jim's band. Our thoughts and prayers to ALL during this difficult time. LOVE, Bob & Suzan Gamber

This women, my Aunt, was the example of being a true Christian. Her life was truly Christ like in everything she did. When you met Dorothy you left feeling better about yourself! She just always gave a piece of herself to everyone she met. God sent and angel to us and an example of how to live a life of service to others! May her soul rest in piece with her husband Uncle Bill.
