We all loved Dorothy, she was always so sweet. I have a lot of fond memories from shopping at Dick’s store when I was a child and Dorothy is one of them. Dorothy was always so genuine and always had a kind word and a smile. She will be missed.

You will be missed by so many Grandma… Always smiling, laughing, and happy to see all of us grandkids. I feel blessed to have called you family. I’ll miss everything about you. I wish I could see the smile on your face when you get to walk hand in hand with Grandpa Louie in Heaven. I know how much you have missed him. Until we meet again Gram… Give Grandpa hell for me. Love you!

Ron and family. I’m sad to hear about Dort’s passing. Your mom was very special. I loved working with her at Dick’s and will always treasure the sound of her laugh and how much she loved you and your family. I’m sorry for your loss but you know she is swinging those clubs in Heaven

Condolence from Donna (Osborn) Ingraham on October 27th, 2015 9:49 pm

Dorothy was mom’s roommate at Life Care. We learned that they had been friends from High School. She always had a smile and enjoyed going outside with mom. They loved setting out by the pond out back and listening to the bull frog. It was also fun to watch Dorothy’s face light up when we would swing together in the court yard. She loved to talk of a little dog she use to have, and looking at pictures of her grandkids. Our prayers go out to her family.
