Dorothy Henrietta (Grob) Haugh was born on January 4, 1928 in Etna, PA to Arthur and Henrietta Grob, and she was soon joined by her younger sister, Marilyn.  After graduating high school, Dorothy was determined to become the first female in her family to pursue her college education at the University of Pittsburgh.  While at Pitt, she met the love of her life, Frank Charles Haugh, in differential calculus class. After graduating from Pitt with her Bachelors in Science, she married Frank on June 3, 1950.  Beginning in 1952, Frank and Dorothy had four children and Dorothy devoted her life to her family as an excellent homemaker and caretaker of her family.  Whether she was sewing, gardening, or baking her delicious pies, Dorothy’s attitude of service to her family was always evident.  Her keen mind was kept active through reading, various classes, and her daily crossword puzzles. Throughout her life, Dorothy enjoyed traveling domestically and abroad, including many trips with the Pitt Alumni Group.  

Consistently, Dorothy was noted as loving and gracious.  This demeanor was founded in her love for Christ, her personal savior.  Her commitment to her Christian faith led her to teach Sunday School classes for over 40 years, mostly preschool aged children. She was also active in church women’s groups, activities at her children’s schools, academic tutoring, and Eastern Star.

Dorothy was preceded in death by her beloved husband of 67 years, Frank. She is survived by her children, Frank A. Haugh (Maureen), Karen Urbanik (Edward), David Haugh (Susan), and Diane (Haugh) Moretti.  Additionally, her loving legacy includes nine grandchildren and 4 great-grandchildren.  

Special thanks to the staff at The Renaissance Retirement Campus, Dorothy’s home for the last 12 years. The excellent care she received during her years there is appreciated by her family.
