Born in Springdale, CT, she was the daughter of James C. Schanz and Mary Lane Schanz.

To the family of Mrs. Tymon....
My whole family sends you our sincere sympathy. Your Mom was our favorite babysitter so many years ago. My three children (all of whom have children of their own now) would always ask to have her come...especially if my husband and I would be away traveling and it was a live-in situation. And, I loved it because I liked her and could trust her!
One little episode that your Mom found so funny concerned my younger daughter when she was barely two years old. You might remember that your Mom wore Keds sneakers. Well, that two year old loved to carry a plastic tennis racquet and wear a tennis visor. Your mom walked in the door ...and Lesley looked at her and said "Hey, Tymon....you wear sneakers....you play tennis?" (We did teach her better manners later!) Your mother loved it ....she laughed so hard!
We shall keep her in our prayers.
Joe, Maureen, Jay, Hilary and Lesley Roxe

Tymon Family
A person like your Mom can be judged by the Family she leaves behind. The “Springdale Shanz-Tymon” clan will live on through her Family. It is obvious your Mom instilled her fervor and pride in her Kids. Live her life onward by remembering the good times your Mom created. My best to the Family

Dear Tim, Debbie and Denise - our deepest condolences on the loss of your dear mother, Dorothy. She was a great lady and I will always remember sitting outside with her under the shade of one of her trees, watching the birds enjoying the feeders and bird baths set out for them!
With love, Karen, Mike, Kathryn and Tyler

Jo and I are very sorry to hear of Mrs Tyson’s passing. We have fond memories of her thoughtful notes and beautiful handwriting. I have a great memory of sitting in her kitchen having a good conversation and a cocktail. Your family will be in our thoughts and prayers and we will always remember her grace, sense of humor and smile.
