Dorothy M. Feller, age 63, of Dover died early, Saturday, October 30, 2021, in Aultman Hospital at Canton following a period of declining health.
Born on October 9, 1958, in Millersburg, Ohio Dorothy was a daughter of the late Eli E. and Betty Nussbaum Hochstetler.
She was a 1977 graduate of Hiland High School and on March 23, 1978, married the love of her life Richard Feller who lovingly called her, “Dorota”, meaning “Gift of God.”
Dorothy’s life was centered around her deep faith in the Lord. She loved her Precept Bible Study time and having her faith nurtured at the Dover Alliance Church. Next came family, as raising her children and spending time with them as they grew older and had families of their own was a passion of Dorothy’s. She will long be remembered for her baking and crafting skills and the joy she felt while being able to travel and vacation with her husband.
