To: Mike (Farley), Dedra, Tim, Marilyn, and Kevin. So sorry for your loss. I just drove by your old place in Fillmore the end of September and thought of Dorothy. Your Mom was a great loss of a wonderful women! We worked together at P.R. Mallory and I hung out at your house a few times. I can't say enough good things about her. She was a very hard working women. She was the best! We had some good visits. She was beautiful inside and out. It was a privilege to have known her. I'm not sure how many of you remember me but I moved to Alaska in 1974 and we now live in Florida full time as of 2010. I went to Fillmore school all 12 years. My thoughts and prayers are with each of you.
Linda (Huber) Maggard. Hugs

One nice lady! I have to tell my story about her. In the summer of 68,I went over to pickup,Mike, about one,on a Saturday afternoon. I walk in and Dorothy had me set down on the couch . Mike was getting ready . He came out already to go and I got up to leave. The mail had come ,Mike grabbed the Wall Street Journal and disappeared. Dorothy tells me that he won’t be back till he reads the whole thing. I said,well crap,if I would have known that,I would have stopped and got a haircut. Dorothy piped up that she would cut my hair. She pulled out a chair and told me to set down. Now,I was not to argue with that little woman! Through the years I would see Dorothy at Cooper’s Hardware, Mill Creek Inn,Blue Flame,and other places. I would always tell people,how she gave the best haircut in my life and I meant it. Dorothy would let out out a giggle,which was pure,Dorothy! I’m so glad I knew that lady.

Dorothy helped me tremendously throughout my high school days. I was her babysitter, but she was so much more than an employer. She was a friend and advisor. She was always such a hardworker. No matter how much she worked outside the home, her house was spotless and she always left a good meal for her family while she worked the evening shift. A great role-model.
