She is survived by her brothers, Bobby (Grace) Anweiler of Louisiana, Elmer (Marguerite) Anweiler of New Orleans, and Harvey (Toni) Anweiler of New Jersey; her sisters, Betty Fancher of Ottawa, Helen Sampson of Ottawa, and Esther Gunderson of South Carolina; as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

Dorothy and Stan traveled from one end of the country to the other, seeing almost all of the fifty states. She and Stan enjoyed everything together. She was a beautiful seamstress and loved doing crafts and crochet. In her leisure, she loved spending time in the kitchen as she was an excellent cook. Dorothy also enjoyed her time spent in the beauty of her flower gardens. Memorial contributions may be directed to the family for a charity to be designated at a later date.
