Susan Ann Dozzi, 74, a resident of the Forest Grove Community, passed into her Savior's loving arms on Friday evening, November 21, 2014 with family by her side at the Providence St. Vincent's Medical Center in Portland. Susan was born on April 6, 1940 in Cedar Falls, Iowa, to James and Evelyn (Davis) Joy. In 1947 she moved with her family to Denver, Colorado, and later to Greenwood Village, Colorado, where she was raised. She was a graduate of Cherry Creek High School, class of 1958. Upon her graduation she attended Colorado Women's College. She was united in marriage to John T. Dozzi on November 5, 1960 in Littleton, Colorado. They celebrated their 54th Wedding Anniversary this past November. Following their marriage they made their home in the communities of Denver, Colorado, Helena, Montana, Santa Barbara, California, Long Lake, Minnesota, and Rapid City, South Dakota, before moving to the Hillsboro community. They made their home in Hillsboro for fourteen years until November of 2013 when they moved to The Grove Assisted Living Retirement Community in Forest Grove where they have resided since. Susan's pride and joy were her three children and she stayed home as a homemaker to raise them. In the most recent years, Susan spent many hours knitting prayer shawls for those in need of His comfort. She was a guitar instructor as well as an accomplished musician, a long time member of the Episcopal Church and a member the Red Hat Society.
