She was a loving mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. She is survived by her son, Wayne, daughter-in-law, Nina, a son-in law, four grandchildren, five great-grandchildren, one sister, and nieces and nephews.

Dorothy retired from CVS, where she worked for over 30 years as a pharmacist technician. She loved her work and the many people she came to serve over the years. Dorothy loved children, and after her retirement she provided day care in her home for several babies and young boys and girls whom she came to think of as her own. She was also a past member of Ferry Farm Baptist Church.

Per Dorothy's wishes, there will be no funeral service and she requested that only her immediate family lay her to rest beside her husband at Sunset Memorial. Gardens in Fredericksburg, Va. 

Her family requests that anyone who wishes to send a memorial gift, please send it to Hospice At Home Care, 1121 Heatherstone Drive, Fredericksburg, VA 22407.
