Dotty was a very special aunt. She was a lifelong comfort and support to my mom, and I always enjoyed our chats--she could always make me laugh with her witty observations. She will be missed. Sending prayers and love to all of you.

Dorothy was our next door neighbor for over 20 years. She was always a good friend as well. A hard working, kind, compassionate woman and she will be missed by all in my family. Our condolences.

Dottie was our next door neighbor for over 20 years. Within that time we got to know her as a remarkable mother, grandmother, neighbor and friend. It was evident Dottie loved her children and grandchildren. She always kept us undated as she spoke with love and pride of swimming events, graduations, weddings, the birth of great grandchildren to name a few. Dottie was an amazing listener and always took the time to stop and talk to everyone on the street on her daily walks around the neighborhood. She was a role model for everyone, always maintaining her independence and in keeping physically active with gardening in the summer, raking leaves in the fall and shoveling snow in the winter. She continued to do this right up to her 90th birthday.
I am grateful to have known this amazing woman and will remember her with the fondest of memories.
Rest In Peace my dear friend Dottie.

I got to know Dottie through playing bridge, and I know her many bridge playing friends will miss her. She was very helpful to me when I got back to playing after a 20 year hiatus. She was fun to visit with and loved to tell us about her family.

I will absolutely miss her. She's been such a great influence on my life. I so admired her for being a working Mother, in particularly for working as a nurse with the elderly; that she influenced me to go into healthcare and to work with the elderly. I also worked in the nursing home industry.

As a kid, I would spend a couple weeks in Medina and we so loved swimming and playing in that lake. I will never forget the fun I had with my cousins. So grateful for those summers! As an adult, we'd all go to Cleveland over Christmas break so the kids could go sled riding at the park and we'd walk through the Nature Preserve. Then at night we'd play "Oh Hell" or "Poker" with Dad. So many fond memories of Dottie. I am blessed to have had her in my life; will never forget her and am so thankful that she kept us all together. We are a close knit family and I know we will stay as such. We want to keep the "family" closeness ongoing so I hope we all keep up with each other. You all have my sincere condolences; I love each one of you and am glad to be a part of this family. Love Always, Nancy.

Dorothy was our neighbor for many years on Pellett. She was always kind to my three boys and I. I remember her being so active, doing her own yard work and walking across town! Our deepest condolences.

Grandma Dottie, was always there to offer love, support, and guidance to Jess and I whenever it was needed.

A few things that will always stick out to me personally were when she would tell me that she was praying for me, and how much that meant. Her kindness and caring nature knew no bounds.

Next, I'll always remember around the holiday time when Georgia was playing Alabama and she was jumping up out of her chair and yelling at the TV, I really don't know anyone that age that would've been able to do that.

Lastly, I'll remember her as a loving and generous grandmother to Jess and the rest of the family. She always put others first and gave so much to her family. She will be greatly missed.

Rest in Peace, Grandma Dottie

With Love,
