Dear Mary Kay, Denise and James,
So sorry for your loss. Sending you love & sympathy.
Dottie was such a fun, gentle and vibrant person. We have great fun with her last April in Vegas. She will be dearly missed.
Dottie grow up in the Charlotte Neighborhood with her Father Joseph mother Mary, Brother Richard, and sister Betty. They lived a modest life during the depression. She attended 42 grammar school and graduated from Charlotte high school.. Dorothy met her husband Chuck who also lived in the Charlotte area on River Street. At the young age of 17 Chuck decided to enlist in the Air Force and serve his country. Over the next year Dottie and Chuck enjoyed each others companionship and in 1952 decided to get married.. They lived in San Antonio off the Air force base in Texas.Dottie came home when she was expecting her first child Denise. After completing His time in service he came home to his loving wife and daughter. He pursued a job at Kodak to save some money and bought a house. Then Dottie had another little bundle of joy, this time a son, whom they decided to name after his father Charles. Then in 1965 they move to Greece New York as a family of four They became members of Saint Lawrence Church were Dottie was in the choir, church council and a Eucharist minister, They stayed in that parish till 1992. They decided to down size and moved to Hamlin New York in Harper's park. They became members of ST. Elizabeth Ann Seaton parish and met a lot of new friends there and were very happy. Within a year and a half of moving there Chuck passed away in Dottie's Loving arms. Dottie stayed in Hamlin with all her friends were she got involved in the Red Hatters, Hamlin seniors group and many Church activity's and volunteered at lake side hospital in the gift shop. She loved going to the movies dinners, lunches and playing cards with her friends. Dottie never sat still she was always on the go. Mom attended many senior trips. If you talk to her friends they will say what a joy she was to be around and how much she will be missed .
.Mom's calendar was so full that we actually had to make an appointment to see her. We planned our time around her. We have so many good memories of Mom and will cherish them all . Dottie took pride in her home and loved to garden. Each year the association where Dottie lived, they would judge all the yards and of coarse Dottie won many times! It might have something to do with the abundance of lawn ornaments! Dottie loved to play all types of games and of coarse she was so lucky she won many times! It was apparent that mom loved life and her big smile showed genuine love she had for all of us.
The darkest hours of her life were losing her husband and son and the brightest hours of her life we when each of her (6) grandsons were born and then her (11) great grandchildren were born . Family meant everything to her and she meant everything to us, we will miss you Mom . Forever in our hearts
Our prayers are with the family God took another angel may peace come to you all she was sweet love Judy Ed family
