Dorothy was always preoccupied with caring for others over the course of many years. She was always willing to minister to others in whatever way she could.

She ran the lunch counter at the Sunnyside Sales Yard, Mile High Cafe, Eastway Pharmacy and Walter's Drug Store. She spent a great deal of time caring for her husband during his terminal illness. Her wisdom and compassion was always admired and cherished by her family.
The family would like to thank the Tri-Cities Chaplain and Hospice for their assistance and home care for mom.
