Memories Timeline


  1. I saw her on Monday afternoon about 2 p.m. She was sitting up snacking. She remarked about having eat her meals on her own, but was hoping to to get back to the dining room soon. We moved to the couches and into a conversation about friends, ancestries and her stuffed animals. We had a pleasant visit and I will miss her very much.

  2. Thoughts & prayers to all her wonderful daughters and family. I will miss her beautiful smile & warmth. Always had a soft spot in my heart for Dorothy, and will always think of her dearly.

  3. Carla and Stuart and family:
    We were so sorry to hear of Carla’s mom’s passing. I have seen many comments about what a nice person Dorothy was. My mom
    thought so, as well. She lived a remarkably long time . We are sending our love and sympathy to the whole family.
    Vern and Kathleen Rensing
