    I too remember Dotty Degitz’s kindness when I frequently stayed at my Aunt Margie and Uncle Frank Holda’s house growing up. The Holdas were the Degitz’s next door neighbors for many, many years. Dotty checked on Margie constantly especially in the years when Margie lived alone. Dotty frequently chauffeured Margie around. She always said no one could ask for a better neighbor than Dotty.

    I owe my love of baking to Mrs. Degitz. She was my 4-H Foods leader for many years. I learned so much about baking and cooking from her during that time. (As a student of Mr. Degitz I remember the huge plate of cookies she’d bake and he’d share at Christmas! Yum!) It was such a pleasure to see her at church and visit with her, as well as when I’d drop off her Mary Kay orders. She always was so positive and joy-filled. I will miss her dearly. God’s peace to all of you. Looking forward to seeing her again in Heaven!
