 If you had the honor of knowing Dorothy words can’t say enough. She was loving, devoted, fierce, crafty, artistic, down-to-earth, dependable, and nurturing, but she could still make her adult sons run when Mom meant business. She enjoyed gardening, making a variety of crafts, spending time with family and friends, and traveling to new places.

 As per her wishes, there will be no formal visitation. The family is planning a memorial service for June 25, 2022 4 to 9 PM,at Gardner Hall in Commodore (the old community building).

They ask that you take this time to go outside, enjoy our lives here on this earth, and plant some flowers that will make you think of Dorothy until we meet her again!
