Dorothy was a longtime member of Amicae per Annos Sorority, a group of women, who for 98 years, have been united in friendship and in promoting and monetarily embracing community needs. She joined the Sorority in 1994, is a past President, and was one of the best table-centerpiece arrangers in our organization. Her friendliness, her smile, and her enthusiasm will be dearly missed. For the past few years Dororthy was given honorary membership status due to health issues. We offer our deepest sympathy to her family on the death of this lovely, classy lady we called friend.

Lucille Nuss, current President, and all 45 members of Amicae er Annos Sorority.

To Kim, Megan, and family members,

Our thoughts and prayers are with you doing this time of your loss. I so recall the kindness and love that both your mom and dad gave me when they hired me to shovel snow around Ashland Florist
, then as I got older, to drive floral deliveries during my high school and college years in Ashland. Your dad was like a father to me since I had lost my father when I was just 14. Both your mom and dad taught me so much and I learn much from their caring and love. Dot was always in happy spirits and seemed to enjoy me and forgiving when I had a small accident with the floral truck. Memories continue when we were living in Japan and both your mom and dad visited us and we visited together numerous sites. So much laughter and fun. Thank you for sharing both your mom and dad.

Blessings to you and your extended family.
