Dorothy was a very beautiful lady, both inside and out. Not only could she make chicken and noodles, angel food cake; but the most amazing strawberry pie and fried chicken. Her love for her boys were unmeasurable and unconditional. Dorothy, now that you’re one of God’s angels your smile and laughter will live on forever. Wishing the family condolences during this difficult time. Until we meet again-God Bless!! Cyndi Biesenthal Anderson
