Dorothy was one of the most gracious and joyful ladies, always had a beautiful smile and genuine warmth.
Always made everything so special and hosted the most fabulous Christmas ROTC parties!!!!

Dorothy will be sadly missed by so many friends at Cherry Hill.
She was always a warm presence and a joyful golf partner. We had some good times on the course and shared some special luncheons.
I will surely miss her.
Sincerely,
Mary Jo Fornes

Dear Jim
We will always hold Dorothy close to our hearts. She was always my support and dear friend in our BPS office and made sure I saw the positive side of everything. I will always remember her with a smile and wonderful memories. Love and prayers, Bonnie and Wally

Dorothy lived a gracious life, and will be truly missed by all. I give my moral support to the McNicholas Family for your precious loss . Jesus promised, just as the FATHER raised him from the dead and made him alive, so the SON also makes alive. (John 5:21) May you reflect on this promise to give you comfort, peace and the hope of embracing Dorothy again.

Jim and family,

Please accept our deepest sympathies on the passing of Dorothy. We always enjoyed our times together at Canisius, especially at basketball games and other celebrations. May she now be at peace.
