Dorothy was a devoted mother, grandmother and friend. She loved being a mother and raising her two boys. She loved attending all of their baseball games and cheering them on. She opened her home to everyone as the place for sharing stories and enjoying a good laugh. She loved her grandchildren and attended many of their dance concerts over the years.
