Dorothy was born in New York but spent more than 80 years as a Californian. She played many roles in her long life but her real joy came in the form of service. She loved the times she spent jas the chief cook for the youth groups of her church, and well into her eighties she was always available to cook a meal for a shut in, shuttle her less abled friends on their errands, or just be available for a phone call. She was most proud of her Danish heritage.
