Dorothy portrayed such a Christian woman with her gentleness and kind and complimentary ways! She was always willing to help and was dedicated to St Peter's Church in many ways! She will be very missed at church and "in the valley" as a true asset! I will miss her wearing a hat to church...very few of us do anymore!! We all so enjoyed the ladies' tea she was a key player in at church and she was always inviting visitors to attend the valley church! Extending sincere sympathy for a treasured friend!

Sue Ann, I was so sorry to hear of Aunt Dorothy's passing. Our family is diminishing and as we grow older I t doesn't seem possible that all Grandma and Grandpa's children are now gone. Even our generation has experienced loss and illness. Please let us know if there is anything at all you need. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
