Thoughts & prayers for this family. Dorothy was a great friend and co-worker of my Mom. She will be greatly missed.
I first met Dorothy in 1954 when my brother Gene introduced us to his bride to be. I remember as a nine year old kid that she was the prettiest girl I had ever seen! But just a little shy.
The tragedy of Keith’s death took a toll on her. She was a protective mom and grandmother – she loved her family.
I will miss my chats with her!
You have battled all the challenges life has thrown at you dear lady.
Now enjoy your reunion with those you cherished – rest in peace Dorothy Fay.
