  1. My condolences to Dot’s family. She was a family friend for years, joining the the Knit & Spit Club to which my mother and several other family friends belonged. I will miss knowing she was just down the street.

  2. I am so sorry to hear of Dorothy’s passing. She was a devoted member of Old Parish and was always so pleasant and gracious whenever we met…usually at the Post Office or a church event. Dorothy was a good friend to my Mom, Elsie West, and always asked about her well being when Mom lived at Geer Village. Dorothy was a wonderful seamstress. I was so sad when she could no longer shorten my husband’s pants. She was a “sewing goddess” for me. Dorothy always looked incredible and was a true lady. Sherry, I am so sorry for your loss.
