Dorthea was a very special friend. She and I worked together in the catalog department at Sears. Even after the store at the North Park Shopping Center closed, we remained friends.
We camped together and especially enjoyed getting together in Florida. Dorthea and Isaac taught us all we know about camping.
I will always remember Dorthea for her wonderful sense of humor, her kind and loving heart and her love for Jesus.
