I was very sad to recently hear about Dorothy's passing. My mother, Theresa McBrien, and I often visited Dorothy's mom, Jeannie, in Scituate. Dorothy would come in with a big smile for us and truly made us feel welcomed and like one of the family. Jeannie would tell us how proud she was of all her children and Laura. I will always remember Dorothy as kind and generous - a beautiful spirit with a great sense of humor. My thoughts and prayers for everyone.

Dottie was as shining light to all who knew her. She lit up a room when she entered! My sister Susan and I had the pleasure of working with her many years ago at the Minot! We have wonderful memories of much laughter and fun ! We love you Dottie, rest in peace !!
