Read more about the life story of Dorothy and share your memory.
Dorothy was born into a happy, bustling family living with grandparents and nearby aunts and uncles and cousins. There was always laughter, food, music and storytelling. Dottie listened to all kinds of music, enjoyed musical theater, loved to sing and play the piano. She liked to say she picked up her husband Joe in an alley...they met in a bowling alley. They lived a good life and worked hard to make their dreams come true. Dottie worked for several non profits including United Cerebral Palsy, Multiple Sclerosis and the American Heart Association. She loved travel, slots machines, her Rosary and holy water. For many years she volunteered in her church's soup kitchen. She took home cooked family meals, gift giving and her home baked fruit pies and cobbler very seriously. Her daughters, Donna and Laurie Jo feel blessed to have had such a good mother and will miss her always. Her daughters and her sons in law Jack and Vincent, her granddaughter Brandi and great granddaughter Mikaela will never forget her smile, laughter, love and a splash of holy water.
