Dorothy was a great volunteer and loved to serve her church. She loved to play cards and was fiercely competitive. She had an opinion about everything and was not afraid to give it! Dorothy passed away after suffering from Alzheimer’s. Anyone who knew Dorothy knows how hard it was for her to lose her independence. Although her family and friends will miss her we are comforted by the fact that she is free from pain and suffering and with her Heavenly Father.

The family will receive visitors beginning at 10:00 am also at Westbury Church of Christ.
