My family worked with Dorothy from some extent for many, many years. I was lucky enough to know this kind and loving woman. Always had a smile on her face and a good friend to all who knew her. So sorry to hear of her passing. Rest in peace now, and forevermore. You will be missed. Glenn Adkins & family.

On the day my husband passed, 20 years ago next month, Dorothy and Larry drove from Berea to Chesapeake Ohio, they was the first ones there for the visitation, I just know my Rick, was one of the first ones to welcome Dorothy to her heavenly home! Rest In Peace Dorothy, you was a good mother.always good and kind. My deepest condolences to the family you leave behind

Dorothy was one of the most friendly and kind ladies you could possibly know. Always a smile and caring attitude. Any time we went to Berea Hospital would look for her in the hallway--she would brighten the day with a cute story. Will miss her greatly. Donald & Irene
