Aunt Dorothy was a great woman and mother. I first met her in the later 1940's in Rock Island when she was married to my Uncle Art. After she moved back to Boone area, my Uncle Bob would see her at HyVee and she would ask him about me. She had some hard times but made sure her son Tom was taken care of and raised him alone. She can rest now and be carefree!!
