    I was sorry to hear of Dorothy’s passing. I’m sure she is comforted, peaceful, and joyful to be with our Lord. Dorothy was and inspiration to me and I’m sure she is singing at the top of her lungs! I will keep you all in prayer.

  2. What a wonderful day for me in February 2001 when I boarded a tour bus and met Dorothy. Two souls from the West Coast meeting in Maryland and becoming connected. We had such fun over the years we shared here in Columbis. The high points of my life. A friend to share times with and talk, talk, talk. I missed her when she moved West, again, and will continue to miss her now. However, happy that she is at peace. A wonderful lady, a wonderful friend. My thoughts are with her family, thank you for taking such great care of her. Julie

    I’ve known Dorothy my entire life – our parents were neighbors in Sidney NE in the 1950s. When I moved to Seattle in 1983, she gave me a special tour, zipping down the city’s tallest hill in her sporty convertible. She truly lived life to the fullest. I plan to come to her memorial service.

    Dorothy saved my life. Thirty-eight years ago I was a rapidly declining alcoholic with no future and failing health. Dorothy encouraged me to seek treatment and, while there, came to visit me frequently. Her kind words and visits meant everything to me and through her I regained my self-respect and the courage to change. Then, she disappeared and we lost contact. I searched but this was pre-computer and my search was in vain. Recently I asked a friend who does family research to look for me and he returned that, sadly, Dorothy had passed. While not surprised, I was deeply saddened and so very sorry I hadn’t tried harder to find her.
    Dorothy once gave me a piece of toilet paper on which she typed “a gift direct from Windsor Castle” which I framed and have hung near my WC for many years. I think of her often with love and my deepest thanks. She was my living angel and I’ve had a blessed and sober life because of her.
