Dorothy was saved at an early age and remained a faithful servant of her Lord and her church throughout her life. She was a loving aunt to her nieces and nephews and their families; and a devoted step-mother to Roger’s daughters and their families.
Dorothy passed away on Thursday, March 15, 2012, at Hutchinson Regional Medical Center. She was ninety-seven.

who teach by their deeds
and by what they say.
Who help students learn truth,
to choose right from wrong,
to embrace wisdom,
and to grow in understanding,
By being for them a living lesson
from God’s textbook of life.
“Study to show thyself
approved unto God.”
II Timothy 2:15
