OKLAHOMA CITY--Dorothy Louise "Lucy" was born in Bennington Oklahoma, in 1919 to Mattie Bell Steelman & Samuel A. Blundell. She went to paradise to be with her Savior, Jesus Christ, on June 1 after a wonderful life.
She graduated from Carnegie High School in 1938. She attended Oklahoma City University with a B.A. and Master of Arts in creative writing. Dorothy had many accomplishments, and one she was proud of was being accepted into the Who's Who of America and the Da Vinci Diamond Award of United Kingdom, plus various other awards for her poetry and writings. Some of her writings have been nationally published in Best Poems of 1997 and in 1980, The Scarab and Journal of Oklahoma City community.
She was a faithful member of Northside Christian Church for many years. Dorothy has always been a native Oklahoman and loved to frequent its lakes. She resided in North Quail Creek community in which she was active in the homeowners' association for many years.
