Dorothy was known by everyone as "Dottie". She was a little lady with a big sparkly personality. Dottie loved to wear bright colored earrings and matching necklaces. Her weekly beauty shop visits brought her much happiness. And when "The Desperadoes" provided Karaoke. But mostly her eyes would sparkle brightly when children came to visit. Dottie was a Christian and had a personal relationship with Jesus. We believe Dottie new life in Heaven is caring for babies. She was loved by everyone at the Greenwood Connections and returned her affection with a "Thank you, Honey" for everything.
