Dorothy was a devoted mother, devout Christian, and meticulous homemaker. She enjoyed sewing, embroidery, and stitchery.  Dorothy was known for putting her children and others first throughout her life.  After raising her nine children and relocating to Melbourne, Florida, Dorothy expanded her Christian service by volunteering at the Ascension Catholic Church Thrift Store.
