  1. A beautiful and kind soul. Will miss talking to this wonderful LADY who has done so much for the college and the heritage club. Always a kind word for all she dealt with in all her years.

  2. So sad to hear of Dorothy’s passing. She was a very strong supporter of the Heritage Group. Rarely missed a meeting. Helped a great deal in updating the constitution. Brought some of her own baking to many of the meetings. I will miss her.

  3. OMG I was gobsmacked when I was at Randy Rummery’s wake today and was told that Dorothy had died. I missed her obit in Saturday’s paper because her proper name is Theodora. I wondered why she wasn’t at the last HG meeting as she was a loyal attender. I will be attending her funeral on Saturday.
