Dorothy enjoyed hosting dinners, get togethers, holidays and any other reason to have people over for food and drinks. She loved having her family and friends close. She enjoyed yardsaling and trips to the casino. For many years, Dorothy and her closest friends took yearly "girl's trips" to spots like Hawai'i, New Orleans, Nashville and others, along with a couple of cruises thrown in the mix. She was an avid camper over the years, taking countless trips with her family and many close friends. She enjoyed gardening, and was definitely talented; at one point having a rose garden that was the envy of the neighborhood. Dorothy held a special place in the hearts of many, and will be deeply missed.
