Dorothy was born in Nowata, Okla., on March 24, 1923, and was for many years a devoted wife, mother and homemaker. She called many places "home" throughout her life, including Oklahoma, Iowa, Nebraska, Missouri, Texas, Kansas, Michigan and Florida.
Dorothy and her husband, John retired in Destin where they enjoyed many happy years with family and friends. John predeceased Dorothy on Feb. 20, 1996.
Dorothy was an avid antique collector, enjoyed refurbishing furniture and operated an estate sale business while living in Grand Rapids. She was blessed with the companionship of many cats and dogs over the years and loved watching birds, especially cardinals, at her feeder. Everyone who knew her was aware that her favorite color was red.
Her wishes were to be cremated. A ceremony celebrating Dorothy's life will be held in the summer, her favorite time of the year. The family wishes to thank the staff of ICMCF and her friends at Great Lakes Caring for their grace and compassionate care.
