I am very sorry for the loss of Dorothy. I knew her as we were both on the Horticulture Committee for many years together at Holy Family all through the 1990's.
We also had many fun committee lunches together at James Gang. She will be remembered to me as a very warm, kind lady with a wonderful laugh and sense of humor.
May she Rest In Peace and be with God.
