Peacefully at Hillsdale Terrace after a short and courageous struggle at the age of 90. To the end, Dorothy showed grace, dignity and always a loving concern for friends and family.

May the road rise to meet you May the wind be always at your back May the sun shine warm upon your face The rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again, May God hold you in the palm of His hand
