Our Dearest Dorothy,
This day, April 13th, will always be remembered and quietly kept,
No words are needed, we shall never forget,
For those we love don't go away,
They walk beside us every day.
Unseen and unheard, but always near,
So loved, so missed, and so very dear.

Dorothy retired from Pacific NW Bell Telephone Company in 1978 with over 30 years of service.
Dorothy enjoyed just being outdoors, whether it was planting flowers, working in her vegetable garden or just spending time with her animals.
Over the past year she treasured all the friendships made at the Cascade Inn in Vancouver, WA, and participating in all of the daily activities, especially BINGO and her nightly routine of RUMMIKUB.
She will be in our hearts forever -
We Love You and God Bless You!
