  1. So sorry we can’t be with you all, but we share your loss, as we have so enjoyed our visits over this past year and having the chance to get to know Aunt Dorothy by phone and Zoom. Time passes by too quickly, but we will always be grateful we had that time with Aunt Dot and the new memories of family she gave us.

  2. Sending our sincere condolences to the Family. Dorothy will certainly be missed by her loving Church members. We sure will miss seeing her behind the piano. She was a caring lady and always stopped by to welcome us into the services every time we went. She will live on in the hearts of us that knew & loved her. She’s now playing tunes up in Heaven on their piano. RIP Dorothy.

  3. I have many good memories of my sister. She loved playing the piano .People enjoyed listening to her play . I will love my sister forever.
    Arden and Lyn and family you are in my prayers .
    Your brother martin
