Dorothy was born on August 4, 1931, in Shooks, MN, to John and Clara (Schriener) Dockendorf. She attended St. Paul's Catholic Church in St. Cloud. Dorothy worked twelve years in housekeeping at the St. Cloud Hospital, and for ten years in maintenance services at St. Cloud State University. After retirement she kept busy assisting her son Daniel at Kipp's Laundry. Dorothy loved Minnesota sports and was a die-hard Twins and Vikings Fan, even through the lean years. She enjoyed traveling and often accompanied her children on vacations. Everyone knew she loved to gamble at the casinos, and often got good returns on those nickels and pennies spent on chance.

Dorothy is survived by: children, Frances (Michael) Bursch of Fairfield UT, Jerome (Brenda Aguilar) of St. Cloud, Linda Kippley (Jim Massmann) of St. Cloud, Daniel (Marge) of St. Cloud, Clarita (Jim) Scherer of Long Lake, Patricia (Dave) Pallansch of DeKalb IL, Steven (Judy) of St. Cloud; 18 grandchildren; 7 great-grandchildren; brothers Edwin (Ruth) Dockendorf, Ray (Ann Marie) Dockendorf; sisters Rosemary Jonas, Lorayne (Robert) Reser, Alice Schriefels, and Clarita (Wally) Rennemo.

She was preceded in death by her parents, and brother Robert Dockendorf.
