One of the funniest memories I have of Dory (dar-ee), as she was called back in the day, was during the family party in New City to celebrate her receiving First Holy Communion. Dory & my sister Jane, who were the same age, went out to play-Dory in her pretty white communion dress & Jane in her Sunday best. After some time they came home both full of oily, tarry streaks all over their pretty dresses & shoes. The county in those days used to oil the streets to help preserve them and the girls thought it would be fun to take sticks & swish them thru the oily substance. Needless to say, their Mommies were not very happy about the outcome!! On the other hand, we other kids thought it was pretty funny!! Dot was a loving Mother & Grandmother & a very hard worker-she sacrificed much for her family. May she rest in peace!
