Dorothy was a kind and gentle lady. She did many wonderful things at the church. May God's arms be wrapped around her family and friends during this sad time. I'll miss her very munch.

In the early '70s we lived across the street from Dorothy on Oakridge. She was such a sweet, gentle lady. It's been a privilege to call her a friend!
