Dorothy married Gordon in December 16, 1949. For 67yrs. of marriage, she was a devoted wife and a loving “Stay at home” Mom. She loved vegetable gardening, RV camping and organizing back yard parties for family and friends. She survived a viral encephalitis in 1986 which left her with a “Two minute memory”. For awhile, Dorothy played bridge with her friends as that part of her brain was not damaged. In her later years, she became a Master at making memory check off lists, playing solitare, and doing jigsaw puzzles and search –a-word books. The family and friends that survive her will forever have more than “Two minutes” of wonderful memories and stories to tell.
A “memory sharing memorial” will be held at her Florida home on November 6th, 2017 at 3’ O Clock PM where her ashes will be interred in a Memory Tree planting urn designed by Roberts Funeral Home of Dunnellon, Florida.
