My Dad lives across the street from Dot and John. When I would go to visit him Dot and I would talk. She had so much spunk and would check on him frequently. Not only would she stop over but would bring him meals. A very kind woman who will be missed. My sympathies to her children and John.

John, Laurie and Jack,

Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this very difficult time. Dot was a very special lady and a good friend that we will miss dearly.
Mike and I have a lot of fond memories of her. Some of the best include when we worked on the New Years Eve parties together at the Casino Club. We threw the greatest. Dot was the master cook while Laurie, Maggie and I, along with Matt and Megan did our very best to put those darn decorations together. Mike and I also worked on the fish fry with both Dot and John. We especially enjoyed the times we spent together with Dot and John up at Brimley. There was never a dull moment when Dot was around. She always made you laugh and I am sure she is raising some hell up in heaven with all her friends.

Love you all
Mike & Barb Fischer
