Dorothy Jane Renshaw

September 19, 1924February 6, 2019

Dorothy Jane (Meyer) Renshaw passed away February 6, 2019. Born September 19, 1924 to Rolla and Frances Meyer, she met the love of her life at a USO dance in her hometown of St. Louis, MO. James Renshaw, who preceded her in death, swept her off her feet, married and moved her to that “one horse town”, San Diego, CA. They were inseparable and we would like to think that they are now dancing to their song “As Time Goes By”.

Dorothy was preceded in death by her sisters, Mary Ellen Duerbeck and Carol Meyer. Survived by her children, James (Barbara) Renshaw, Sharon (D. Michael) Lunday and Deborah (Craig) Turner; she also enjoyed her 8 grandchildren, 20 great grandchildren and 8 great great grandchildren.

Dorothy was always active in her community; volunteering at church, her children’s schools and as a poll worker when it came time to vote. She was an avid bowler and slot machine enthusiast.. Most of all, Dorothy loved life. She fought breast cancer 40 years ago and won and similarly defeated a brain tumor 20 years ago. She was tough and funny and smart (she did crossword puzzles in INK). Her legacy will be the “Dorothy Renshaw speech”; the loving talk you have with someone who desperately needs a verbal smack upside the head. She also never missed an opportunity to tell us how much she loved us. Her expressive big blue eyes and her hearty laugh will be missed by everyone who knew her. The Celebration of Her Life will be held February 23, 2019 at 11am, at Sunland Mortuary in Sun City, AZ
