Dorothy was a sweet and kind person. She took very good care of everyone she came in contact with. I knew her from North Middle. But, I met her at Calvary Methodist Church when I moved there with Ruthie. I enjoyed talking with her and bring a friend of hers. She talked about how proud she was of her beloved children. She will be very much missed as a Christian woman but is with our heavenly father and will meet her again some day!
God Bless you Kate and Mark!

Dorothy was a sincere and sweet “girl”that l met at college. We lived on the same floor in the same dorm. After we met, it didn’t take long to become friends as she was very easy going. My sincere condolences to her family and loved ones.

Dorothy made me want to be a sweeter soul and better flower gardener like her. Kate and Mark, I’m so sad she is gone too soon.
