My sympathies to the family. While working arts peters she was my go to person in helping with bilk mail. I would take it and they would find something wrong and refuse the mailing. Dottie would take it and they would stops d help her fix it. That’s thekindof person she was. You just loved her

Dear cousins, Your mom was a major influence to me throughout my life. I told her many times in recent years “when I grow up I want to be just like you.” She loved her family immensely, loved her church and her community, loved volunteering, loved cooking and growing flowers, loved sharing stories about all our relatives. There are many “Aunt Dot traditions” I adopted - baking a lot of Christmas cookies and candies to give as gifts, povitica, harvesting flower seeds to replant and share, keeping a button box, recycling gift wrapping paper and tissue.... I am praying for each of you, the grandchildren and great grandchildren in the days ahead. Lovingly, Marcia
