Funeral services will be held Monday, August 8, 2011 at 10:30 AM at the Madison Church of Christ in rural Brooklyn, 3503-140th Street, with Dennis Smith officiating.

Dorothy was born July 4, 1931 in Los Angeles, California to Ray and Mildred Beem. At one year of age she went to live with her grandparents Minnie and Walter Uhl in Brooklyn, Iowa. They raised her to adulthood, and she graduated from Brooklyn High School in 1948.
On June 1, 1948 she was united in marriage to Maynard Lang. He survives as do four children born to that marriage; John (friend Catherine Lamb), twins Craig (Mary) and Christine Turpin (Tom), and Eric (Nicole Schlinger); eight grandchildren, Suzanne Turpin Upton (Ian), Sarah Lang, Stephen Turpin, Jessica Lang Bloomberg (Justin), Gavin Lang, Chase Lang (Sylvona), Dane Lang and Cade Lang, and five great grandchildren, Berkeley, Griffin and Parker Upton, and Carsynn and Cael Lang. She was preceded in death by her parents, a brother Walter Beem, and a daughter-in-law, Nancy Lang.
Dorothy was a long time 4-H leader, volunteer at Brookhaven Nursing Home (now Brooklyn Community Estates), and Brooklyn Activity Center. She was a member of the Madison Church of Christ and a full participant in their many activities. She always supported her children in all their school, 4-H and church activities, and she was a full partner in the family dairy operation, keeping all the books and doing payroll until just a few years ago.
Dorothy's special request was that the only flowers at her time of passing be flowers from one's garden or wild flowers from along the Iowa roadside. Memorial donations may be made to the Madison Church of Christ, Brooklyn Activity Center or Brooklyn Community Estate.
