Dorothy was a kind and loving woman who cherished her husband, family and friends. She was the center around which the family gathered for many years for family events and holiday celebrations. She endeared herself to those she hosted with her wonderful home cooked meals, ready sense of humor and genuine kindness. She was a hard-working woman that worked many different jobs through the course of her life. She attended the New Mexico Junior College for an education in accounting and held bookkeeping positions for most of her career. She enjoyed gardening and working to maintain a beautiful yard. Dorothy attended  Cowboy Junction Church and loved the Lord Jesus Christ. Her love and legacy will continue to flourish and live on in the lives of her 6 children, 14 grandchildren, and 12 great grandchildren.
