    Thinking of the family at this time. Dorothy will be missed. I so enjoyed the time we spent visiting and she was always thinking of her family. She was so proud of the family and loved you so much. Her face would light up as she spoke of each one of you.

    Dotty, as I came to know her as at her painting class,always had a smile on her face and a kind word. She would tell a little story about her life in Eudora, and then give a smile and continue to paint. She was a very good painter and when she quit painting her absence was missed.
    I know she will be missed by oh so many.
    So very sorry for your loss. I know she is at peace now.

    She was a gem. My mother thought the world of her and ask us to make sure Dorothy sang at her funeral. When I ask Dorothy she didn’t hesitate saying of course. I’m so glad I knew her. Hugs to all the family.
