Dorothy loved spending time with her family and friends. B-I-N-G-O was her favorite game to play which she was pretty lucky at. Dorothy loved traveling and experiencing life to the fullest and made friends everywhere she went. Dorothy had a bright and energetic personality which will light up a room as soon as she entered. She was “The Life of The Party”. Her love for her grandbabies was unconditional and vice versa. She had a passion for playing music and dancing which she did often. She loved baking for her family and friends. Her banana nut bread and cookies will be missed by many. She touched many lives with her generosity and love for everyone and everything. Dorothy played the AZ lottery religiously and finally hit the “Jackpot” when she entered the gates of Heaven. Dorothy is deeply missed and loved by many. Sunday Fun-day will never be the same without her. May Dottie rest in Heavenly Paradise.
