Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Mar. 5, 1956
Death: May 28, 1999

Dorothy and I worked together and shared a lot of fun times together. So many memories come flooding back as I type this. We worked together for about 10 years before she became ill. The below obituary is very wrong in many ways. She did work for the phone company in Madison and in Totowa. She lived in Paterson when I knew her and we would commute a great deal to work together. She had her "lemon" car and I don't believe there was ever a car like it. A Blue Chevy Chevette, that Dorothy threatened to paint yellow many times and park it in front of the dealer. She used to joke that the only thing that worked on the car was the horn, but to honk it you would have to get it out of the glove compartment. I think that's why we became friends so quickly, we shared the same type of humor, laugh when things are bad. She laughed a lot when it came to that car.
We did a lot of fun things together from going to Great Adventure and getting soaked on the log flume and in the pouring rain, to going down the shore with our friends, Benny, Mark, Theresa, and the rest of the group. We laughed so much in those days. I hope now in heaven Dorothy can enjoy laughing again. She had lupus and was in pain a great deal. Rest peacefully girlfriend. You are missed.

Hi Dorothy, Just stopped by to add a few pictures from years ago. We did have a lot of fun back then didn't we? We made sure everything we did was fun and entertaining. You, Benny, Mark and Ter certainly made me laugh all the time. Rest well always.
