I was an LNA at the retirement home where Dorothy lived the last years of her life. I was very fond of her. For some reason she crossed my mind today, so I googled her name. I came across this obituary.... sweet Dottie, I wish I had looked a month ago, I would've gone to her funeral. I would love to know where she is buried so I could visit her. Rest in paradise Dottie.
