Dorothy will be remembered for her dedication to Trinity Lutheran church, the family farm and gardens in Normanby Township. After moving to Elmira in 1973, Dorothy became a very active member of St. James Lutheran Church and Elmira Seniors. She loved bowling, golf and playing cards. George and Dorothy loved to travel and enjoyed many trips and tours together. After George's passing, Dorothy continued to do so with family and friends.
Dorothy's door was always open to visitors. She loved nothing better than a good visit on the back deck with family and friends, and her exceptionally kind neighbours and their families. Dorothy was very proud of her gardens which she continued to maintain this year!
