Dorothy was a long time member of Trinity Lutheran Church. For 22 years she did make up for the Little Theatre. She was a voracious reader and spent many long hours in her cluttered, book-filled room in her house she called her library. She also enjoyed genealogy and did extensive research on her family history. Mom loved road trips and visited family and friends from coast to coast including but not limited to Colorado, Alaska, Arkansas, Arizona, California, Maine and was still driving well into her eighties. She was eager to help anything associated with family activities and particularly enjoyed “sagging” for DALMAC bike trips.
