Dorothy was a wonderful friend, like a family member to the Curry family. Jim and Dorothy's husband worked many years ago in the oil industry. Jim, Fred, Dorothy, and Connie were best friends when they were young. My husband remembers their loving caring personalities as a young kid. I was introduced to Dorothy the year Tom and I married, 1977 and it was a joy to know Dorothy from the beginning. She and Connie shared family and their Christian religion. While they attended different churches, they had so much in common. Dorothy even attended many of our family birthday parties, including our grandsons party years ago. I loved talking with her and she always remembered our kids names and always asked how they were doing. She cared for everyone and her love of Christ always radiated her. She is a person we all loved, like family. She is now with the Lord, last one of that wonderful group and we will forever be grateful for her wonderful friendship. She is our sister in Christ. God bless your family and our deepest sympathy for your loss. Love, Marie and Tom Curry
