  1. I worked with Dorothy at the police department for quite a few years. As a new officer I knew Dorothy would help me out of whatever paperwork mess I managed to get myself into. And, she always did it with a smile and a kind word. May she rest in peace.

    Dorothy is in a better place now. I am going to miss her. She basically raised me when I was adopted by the Simpsons. She was the best Sister that I could have ever had. Rest in Peace. Love you!

    Dorothy was a dear friend who I worked with for many years at the BPD. Her sense of humor and witt always made me laugh and she had an incredible memory. She loved talking about Jodi and Patricia and other family members. We had many happy hours over the years and I have many fond memories of her. I just thought about her a few days ago and wondered how she was doing. What a great lady. She always looked like a queen. friend judy

    To : Dorothy’s Family: I had the pleasure of working with Dorothy for over a decade at the Bellingham Police Dept. where I was an officer. While she worked in records I talked with her on an almost daily basis, and frequently a bunch of us, including Dorothy, would end up in the lunch room and share a few laughs. After a conversation with Dorothy I always felt a little better and will long remember her humor and positive attitude. Sorry for our loss. Will Ziebell

  5. I worked with Dorothy at Bellingham Police. As a young officer and new to the department. Dorothy was always so nice and helpful. As a detective if you needed research or something done, Dorothy was who I would call. Sorry for the loss because she is one of the nicest people I have met.
