    I have many fond memories of Dot from my childhood when Tom and Dot were good friends of my folks. As I was growing up, her interest and support of all my endeavors was certainly appreciated. A few years ago my boyfriend and I visited the Greece Historical Society and I was so pleased to see her there. I introduced her to Bob and we chatted and caught up on our families’ news. I’m so sorry to hear of her passing now and send my love and prayers to her family.

    I worked with Dorothea at Sears a few decades back and enjoyed her company very much. She was very active and a really nice lady. My condolences to Tom and family.
