    What a wonderful and caring person. All the work she did for kids during the 35 years of transporting them to/from school. Keeping kids safe was always her goal, not to mention the time and gifts she provided to many kids at Xmas. We need more people like Dorothy. Rest in peace.

  • Ginny and Fred Barnum

    What a beautiful soul who loved her family and who reached out to my daughter Melissa when she needed extra love. You are a mentor for strength and resilience. God be with your beautiful daughter Cheryl and her family.

    Although I didn’t have the pleasure of knowing Dorothy, I do know and work with her lovely daughter Cheryl. From things Cheryl has shared about her mom, it’s obvious she was a very nuturing, loving woman who raised a daughter I’m proud to work with and our oncology patients are blessed to have on their healthcare team. My deepest condolences to Dorothy’s family.
