Jeff and Deb, I'm so sorry about Dorothy's passing. It's so difficult to loose a parent! Many family and friends were waiting to welcome her with open arms, I'm sure. My mom and dad spoke highly of Arvin and Dorothy. They are reunited again in Heaven!

To the family of Aunt Dorothy, So sorry for your loss. When we were all young we had so much fun with your family. Your Mom was always so hospitable! Although we were the family from Madison, you all still took time for us. From the farm days when we were very young, to visiting your house & onto the weddings we came to Oshkosh & Appleton for. Love you all and we will miss you dear Aunt Dorothy.

We are keeping you in our prayers. There is always a hole when a loved one leaves this earth,no matter the circumstances of the death. Dorothy was an Eve Circle member of which I am a member. It was always a pleasure to be in her company.We are grateful for her beautiful spirit.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.
