sweetly in my memory
Dorothy was always fun to converse with and a loving and kind soul. She was very sweet to my daughter Maya when she lived with Nancy and Carlton. All those remembered in love and in honor live on. To her family, I wish for you that you find comfort in your many wonderful memories of Dorothy.
This is just so very hard to believe. Dorothy and I first met and worked together at Sams and became best of
friends. We spent many a Christmas together and her Mom cooked great dinners.Dorothy and I loved going to the State Fair
and to Williamsburg… Dorothy you will be greatly missed and never forgotten…RIP my dear friend.
40 years of love, laughter and family. Sorry to see you go. Spread your wings now, no longer earthbound.
I am so sorry to hear of Dorothy’s passing. I always looked forward to chatting with her at ZG. She was an interesting, friendly, genuinely nice person. My sympathies.
Dorothy you were the loveliest person I ever knew. Your memories will be with us forever. Dwight & Dianne
