    Farewell to my loving sister. She will be missed by her family, especially her younger brother. Kenny and Tenza

  • She was my Buddy in crime. We did a lot together and I miss her very much. She was a very spry 90 year old. Nothing kept her down. Lov ya .

  • Connie Smith says:

    I don’t think I’m supposed to have favorites among my “sheep” at Holy Cross, but she definitely was one of them! She always brightened my day whether it be a drop in at the parish office with a “Fat Tuesday” treat or in the choir or chime choir. She was always up for anything and a familiar face at all our church functions….and just a FUN gal!

  • Jewel Erickson says:

    I was one of Dottie’s oil painting students at the Senior Center. She will be missed by so many, a very sweet and caring lady. My sympathies to her family.

  • Fran Wargolet says:

    I will miss Dottie’s sense of humor and her thoughtfulness. We sat next to each other in the choir and she was always fun.

  • Dottie was an absolute treasure at the Westosha Senior Community Center. Always very generous with her time teaching art weekly and demonstrating at our art shows and contests, Dottie’s ready smile brightened the Center. From fun to fundraisers, Dottie was such a loyal supporter of the Center. Her beautiful painted glassware remains on display in the office. Her instruction gave seniors confidence and inspired their creativity. Thank you, Dottie! You are missed!

    It has been a long time away from our faith family at Holy Cross. Dottie exemplified the kindness and energy that attracted us to this parish. She will be dearly missed even though our introductions and experiences were short; they were memorable. Our sympathies to her family.
