Dorothy died at home on Friday morning, in the tender care of her family. She was loved beyond telling by her children Ron Ward, Sharon Chrisman, DeLynn Easley and Richard Abston (deceased), 9 grateful grand children, as well as 12 beautiful great-grandchildren. Born and raised in the San Joaquin Valley, Dorothy married Kenneth Earl Abston (deceased) in 1948, and they settled in Fresno to raise their family. They retired to Riverbank in 1992.

Dorothy was a Sunday school teacher, a pilot, a gardener, an avid reader, a traveler, and a lover of life and family. She will be remembered for her unwavering faith, generosity, and love of family and friends.

Graveside services will take place at Fresno Memorial Gardens on Wednesday, March 5 at 11:00 a.m and a celebration of Dorothy's life, love and faith will be held on Thursday, March 6 at 11:00 a.m. in Riverbank at Oasis of Hope Church.
