Grandchildren Jenn (Kyle), Mike (Erin), Amy (Scott), Jason (Kim), Danny and Justin, and 11 great grandchildren. She is also survived by her brother Harold, sisters-in-law Barb and Patsy Dunnington, Helen and Vic Noble, Norm Noble and Phares Himburg.

“When you closed your eyes and soared to the Heavens I could hear the faint flutter of your wings as you left.”
A special thank you to the amazing staff at Wildwood Nursing Home. Your kind words and compassion in Mom’s last days were amazing. A celebration of Dorothy’s life will take place at a later date.
