Dorothy is preceded in death by her parents, Clinton and Gladys (Fulton) Dunsmore; son, Tyrone Hitchcock; Allen’s parents, Lyman and Charlotte Hitchcock; sisters-in-law, Sharon Hitchcock and Birdie Hitchcock; and brothers-in-law, Scott Hitchcock and Wayne Hull.

Left to cherish Dorothy in memory are her loving husband, Allen Hitchcock; children, Brian (Jennifer) Hitchcock, Brad (Lori) Hitchcock, adopted son Bo (Elien) Trout; grandchildren, Rick (Jennifer) Hitchcock, Jordan (Amanda) Hitchcock, Ryan (Caitlin) Hitchcock, Brad Jr (Jessica) Hitchcock, Brennen Hitchcock, Lynsey Hitchcock; step-grandchildren, Colton and Logan; twelve great-grandchildren; twentyfour nieces and nephews; sister, Barb (Ed) Dunsmore Deforest; brothers-in-law, Barry Hitchcock, Steve Hitchcock, Craig (Sharon) Hitchcock, Mark (Mary) Hitchcock; and sisters-in-law, Karen Hitchcock, Cheri Hitchcock, and Ed (Cindy Hitchcock) Dunkel.

If you knew Dorothy you knew how much she loved her dog Muffy, and she loved to send Christmas and Birthday cards. She never missed your Birthday, and you could count on her cooking and baking your favorite cake and food for your Birthday. She was the most loving, and caring person you would ever meet, and always chose to see the good in everyone. Dorothy was the matriarch of our family, and she will be deeply missed by all who knew her. For many years Allen and Dorothy owned and operated A&D Hitchcock Trucking company out of Webberville, Michigan. Dorothy’s sharp mind for business earned her the opportunity to help operate the business part while Allen drove the truck and ran the logistics.

I worked for Al and Dorthy at A+D Hitchcock trucking. Dorthy treated us all like family. Al and Dorthy ran the most honest straightforward business I had ever seen or have ever seen since. I have done a bunch of other things since, but I always keep a calendar with Al and Dorthy and Al's truck posted in my office.

Sorry for your loss, Al. I know you can count on the support of your great family .

Thinking of all of you at this difficult time. I have so many great memories growing up next to Aunt Dorothy & Uncle Allen and her giving me my first job at 14! She also let me help her make popcorn balls at a young age. She always looked amazing and I always admired her nails as a young girl:)
I loved her smile and laugh. She will be missed dearly until we join her again in eternal life!
Love you all.
