I remember Dorothy and my mom being friends since I was a little kid. They were good buds for 63 years. They had a Cleveland click... Dorothy, Violet, Shirley and Bernice. What fun times they had out and about or chatting in the kitchen. The Hungarian girls♥️

Dorothy was such a sweet, sweet lady. She and my mom were like sisters. My children and I were so glad we visited her last year when we travelled from SC for my mom's funeral. I have talked with her weekly since then and will miss that so much, but she is with my mom in heaven now.

I had the privilege of driving Ms. Dorothy to various stores in Jefferson for the Jefferson Community Center. I will miss her quick wit and her hugs at the end of every run with her. May she rest peacefully.

Dorothy was a good friend to my mother, Margaret Simms, for many years. Her cards meant so much to my mother. Her cards and words of encouragement meant even more since my mother went to a nursing home. She will be missed!
