Along the way, Dorothy worked for the phone company then attended beauty school and eventually opened her own beauty salon in downtown Kennewick. While raising their son, Dorothy and Walter enjoyed many fishing trips with friends and numerous trips to Hawaii. She loved gardening & flowers, and devoted herself to her pristine home garden & immaculate yard. She spent hours at the sewing machine making clothes for all her grandkids, crocheting beautiful afghan blankets, cooking countless family dinners, baking delicious treats for all, and last but not least, canning.
