When Dot's cousin Joey and I announced out marriage Dot reached out immediately and welcomed me to the family with open arms and love! We shared lots of memories some even some from a far! When our son Christian was born all he talked about as he grew up was Pittsburgh, Conneault and his Aunt Dot! He is the die hard Steelers Fan he is today because of the many game day calls that were shared. We celebrate your life and morn our loss. Heaven is gaining an Angel for sure!

Dot was a dear cousin of many years and many many fond memories. For years we even shared Orchard Avenue addresses, she in Avalon and I in Bellevue, and her mother was for many years a favorite aunt of mine. Dot, you will be missed by many of us! May the aeons to come return to you many of the blessings you shared with us here below.
