Dorothy (Mom) was my mother-in-law for 7 years. And then she became my "Mother-in-Love" for the next 33 years. She was always so very kind to me. We kept in touch on the phone and through her great grandchildren, my grandchildren. Mom was the kind of person who packed all she could into life. She was a beautiful role model as a mother, grandmother, wife, and friend. Peggy, Don, and John, Sr., I'm so sorry for the loss of your mother. My heart and prayers are with all of you.

I was in TOPS Club with Dorothy for several years and what a joy she was, always smiling, still bowling into her 80's, and loving life. I treasure a painting she gave me when I was the TOPS queen a few years ago. My deepest sympathy to her entire family, she will be missed. I'm only sorry I didn't call her when I had a chance. I did see her in Choctaw Casino about two years ago and she won $200 on the Wheel of Fortune and I won $400!! We both said we brought each other luck. Heaven has a new angel.

My grandmother.... Dorothy Moir was such a beautiful person inside and out. She was a kind , loving, person. Just the thought of her has always put a smile on my face and a warmth in my heart. She was so talented with her arts and crafts. Everytime I accomplished something in my life that had to do with being creative... I was always proud to think that "I got from her" . She was on a senoir bowling team up until she was 90 years old , winning trophies! Such an amazing woman. My heart breaks that she is not here on earth with us anymore, but I know that My granfather was waiting for in heaven. I know that I will see them both agian someday. Until then I will live my life to the fullest in honor of her. She has a special place in heart.
