Dorothy dedicated her life to her family and was an amazing friend to many. She loved exercising and being active, specifically on the tennis court, where she was a fierce competitor. She enjoyed time at their shore house in Avalon, NJ, where many memories with family and friends were made. Dorothy had a bright, energetic personality with an infectious laugh. She touched so many lives with her generosity, strength and passion.
Due to the current environment, there will be a service only for the immediate family. There will be a public celebration to honor her life on October 3rd, her birthday weekend. More details will follow for that celebration.
In lieu of flowers, the family will set up contributions that can be made to St. Phillip and James, as the family intends on using the contributions to make improvements at the grotto, which Dorothy would visit often to pray to the Blessed Mother.
