Our choir at St. Matthew the Apostle was certainly fortunate to have Dorothy as our “star soprano”! We all loved her and appreciated her for her character, presence, friendship and of course for her singing voice. Dorothy was a beautiful soul both inside and out. She was a classy lady indeed and always dressed so nice. For Pentecost she would wear red, purple for the Triduum, white for Easter and so on! I will miss seeing and talking to her.
My condolences are with all of your family. Her spirit will live on in you! May God Bless all of you with His love, hope and peace,
Georgia Auckly

Dorothy and Harold were members of St. Matthew Apostle Church for many years. Dorothy sang in the choir which I directed for many many years. She was the epitome of class as was Harold. The last time I saw her before St. Matt's closed, we were entering church for mass. She said, "Do you suppose we'll get to sing any peppy music today?" I had retired years before and we both liked "peppy music." I replied that we should make plans to go to St. Monica's church one Sunday. They used to sing there with some "zip & pep." Then covid happened and our church closed but now she is singing with a heavenly choir and I'm sure she'll request a hand clappin' toe tappin' hymn.
My sympathy to her family. Mary Ann R.

Aunt Dorothy Mae, anytime I saw you or spoke with you on the phone, you were always so sweet and kind. I spoke with you a few months ago and you were so happy to hear about your great nephews and what they were up to. You will always be in our hearts and in spirit and never forgotten. Love you always! Sending prayers, hugs and love to everyone.

The love I'll keep for Mrs.Taylor comes through her daughter Tina, and granddaughter Shaylyn.

I know together with her husband, Mrs. Taylor raised a beautiful, bonded, loving family.

I know she was, as Maya Angelou described, 'A Phenomenal Woman.'
I love you all...Remain Blessed.

Well, sister-in-law, just want to thank you again for all the prayers, calls & beautiful cards that you would send for anniversaries, birthdays and all other holidays. You never miss any of them. It’s hard to say good bye but, I know you are not suffering anymore. I don’t know if you knew it , but whenever you all would leave after visiting, your mom would cry. Now you are with her & I know you both are very happy. RIP. Love you ,Gloria
