What a wonderful life to have lived. I have so many fond memories of my years of piano lessons at her home. It was always a special treat when she would play something for me on either her harp or the piano. She will be dearly missed by many.

Dorothy was my piano teacher in 1966. Her schedule was full but she managed to squeeze me in at 9pm on Wednesday evenings. She was the best teacher and wonderful person. She taught me Debussy's Claire de Lune, and when I play it, I can still hear her voice counting out the beats, 123, 456, 789. It is one of my favorite pieces that I continue to play often. I will always think of her when I play. I went on to study music at a conservatory and now teach piano myself. My condolences to the family. Know that she was known and loved by many! Her music lives on in the hearts of her many students!

I met Dorothy in 2010 and even then she was a happy and outgoing person. I had the chance to talk to her a few times and have kunch with her as well. it seemed everywhere we went someone would stop and say hi. Well known and well loved, Dorothy may you rest in peace.

Dear Family, Dode was so special throughout our childhood....there are so many memories....the basement toys, the special snacks, the magical garden, the Christmas tree! But as I grew a true and deep friendship developed. She was sincere, supportive, and always there for me when others were not. I will miss her deeply.

Dear Diane, Tony, Denise, Kathy and Chris, Sara and I are with you in our hearts. We have such wonderful childhood memories of playing dress-up with Dode's clothes....I remember the day I could finally fit into her high-heeled shoes. I was probably about 10! She gave us so much joy and shared so many special occasions with us. Although we are far away we reach out to share your tribute to her today. Fondly, Julie

A very special person I feel so fortunate and happy for get to share a beautiful time with Dorothy, since day number one I felt she was so special, she just irradiated so much love and sweetness, it was so natural and easy to love her so much, just to see her smiling made my day better, happier. I loved so much share meals with her, we had good breakfasts togheter, she liked to see all that food, my favorite meal and my favorite person. Dorothy enjoyed all those little things: a good meal, a smile, a hug, loved being outside, and loved talk and laugh ( I'll miss that) Everybody loved Dorothy she was so generous in her love, we all felt it and we always make sure she knew we were happy to have her with us and she was so much loved. She will live forever in a very special place in my heart. Thanks

My deepest thoughts go to the family of Dorothy...she was my piano teacher for years and I enjoyed her presence and warm heart! I always enjoyed when I lived in town, that I would see her outside her home on my drives by...She will be missed by many who she graced her piano knowledge to! She lived a long, healthy life and will entertain those she is with in heaven! Page (Forment) Berghoffer & Sally Forment

I'll so miss that smile and that sincere, genuine warmth that Dorothy effortlessly exuded. She was a wonderful neighbor and friend, and made the community a far better place. I can't help but feel that somewhere, particularly in this holiday season that a bell is ringing like crazy as Dorothy gets her wings.
