Dorothy was known for her love of flowers and cats. She was an avid gardener, canned and froze her own produce. She was captain of her bowling team the “Nightengales” for many years.
Dorothy loved doing crossword puzzle, bingo, bonco, word search puzzles and genealogy. Her house was always full of flower arrangements for all occasions.
She donated time to the Lake Seneca Beautification Committee, along with crafts there and in Florida, where she and Henry spent winters.
