Dottie was a hard and uncomplaining worker all her life and was rarely idle. She had a very successful Pet/House Sitting business that kept her extremely busy and very happy. She loved her family and friends but she absolutely adored her pets! Dottie was also a very creative and busy crafts person; sewing, knitting, quilting, rug hooking, basket weaving, greeting cards, and ceramics, just to name a few. She was also a member of many related crafting groups and got together regularly with her her Bunco group. Dottie was an integral and loving part of her large family and of the pets she cared for. She was loved by them all and will truly be missed by everyone who knew her.
