Dorothy was a fixture at Pitt State University, where she proudly served as a baker in the school cafeteria for many years. Her warm smile and welcoming presence brightened the lives of many students who crossed her path.

She cherished her time with family above all else. Whether it was spending quality time with her loved ones, embarking on exciting adventures, or coming together for family reunions, her family was a blessing.

One of Dorothy's favorite pastimes was taking trips with family members. Whether traveling with her sisters to Reno to indulge in a bit of excitement and gambling, trips to Oregon, or taking a train ride to the Grand Canyon, these trips allowed her to enjoy life's little pleasures and create lasting memories with her family.
