Dorothy also enjoyed playing cards especially Duplicate Bridge and was manager of Club Rainbow for over 19 years and always sat at table #1.
Of her Life Dorothy said:
“I had a long and eventful life – a great childhood, a caring family, and many good friends. A very happy marriage to Roy for over 67 years (who I met at age 15 and he 19) and to be blessed with God’s greatest gift of an angel son Russell, and a second blessing of Chris and Mary who were always there for me”
Dorothy’s outgoing and friendly personality touched all who knew her. Rest in peace Dot
A private family funeral will be held. A celebration of Dorothy’s life will be scheduled for a future date.
