Dorothy moved from Oak Ridge, Tennessee, to Morris, Illinois, in 1967 where she began her nursing career. She continued to work as a nurse and caregiver when she returned to Oak Ridge, Tennessee, more than 40+ years ago. Dorothy enjoyed cake decorating, art projects and family - most of her pleasure came through helping others. Dorothy spent many seasons traveling between Oak Ridge and her second home in Inverness, Florida. To travel was at the top of her favorites' list.
The simplest pleasures in life brought joy to Dorothy. Her warm smile and pleasant personality were contagious to everyone she met. She brought comfort and joy to so many. Dorothy had an uncanny ability to find happiness in daily activities: cooking, crafts, friends and family. She found great joy in sharing her faith in God with others. We will remember her for the sunshine she brought to us.
