Dorothy was a devout Catholic who donated much of her time to her church. She had a selfless, loving spirit, and served as a caregiver for her beloved husband, John, for years. Dorothy was fond of spending as much time as she could outdoors and was proud of the beautiful yard she landscaped. For fun, Dorothy liked to spend time with family and neighborhood friends, or watch one of her favorite shows on television.
Above everything, Dorothy was a loving mother and grandmother who would do anything for her family. Her kind, generous, and selfless personality made her a source of strength to rely on for all. She will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved her.
