God and God’s Word was important to Dorothy. She liked reading and learning about the scriptures and also listening to messages on TV and the radio.
Dorothy loved playing cards with family and friends and enjoyed going dancing. She always looked forward to family gatherings whether it be holidays or birthdays or just getting together to talk, laugh and enjoy each other. She loved her family. Dorothy was a loving, caring and strong woman with a smile that would light up the room. There are no words to express how much she was loved. She was a wonderful mother and grandma and she will be deeply missed.
The family would like to extend a very heartfelt thank you to the staff at Hiawatha Care Center and Dr. Nelson for following up with mom’s care and her needs. Your love and the direction you gave to the family was definitely helpful and appreciated.
