Dorothy Heiser, daughter of Edward and Pauline (Lutz) Heiser was born on June 20, 1923 near Greenway, SD. This is the area where she was raised and attended school.

Dorothy was united in marriage to Edward Berreth on October 24, 1944 in Greenway. They farmed near Artas, SD until 1949 when they began making their home in Aberdeen.

Following her husband's retirement, Dorothy and Edward purchased the drive-inn in Britton, SD. They renamed the business Dolly's Drive Inn and operated it for seven years. During this time the couple continued to make their home in Aberdeen. Dorothy's beloved husband Edward died on May 8, 2011.

Dorothy was a member of North Highland United Methodist Church where she sang in the choir. She loved cook books and was also an excellent baker and cook of German food. Her greatest joy came from the time she was able to spend with her family and especially cherished her grandchildren and great grandchildren.
