    Dorothy will be deeply missed by all the people who had the privilege and pleasure of knowing her – she was so proud of her family and loved her husband Gene deeply. Gene is the love of her life, and Dorothy loved all her family with a passion. Dorothy was a pleasure to visit and her stories were wonderful. This special woman has a special place with the angels – rest peacefully Dorothy and thank you for your kindness – you will be deeply missed and always loved.
    To the family – deepest sympathy – you all took such good care of Dorothy – she has bragging rights in heaven. God Bless…… Irene
