Dot was a very fun and loving person who enjoyed being around others. She loved to mow her lawn on her riding mower, crochet and every Friday, she would gather up her friends and they would all go to the hairdresser. But her greatest love was her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.

Do not stand at my grave and weep, I am not there, I do not sleep. I am the soft stars that shine at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry, I am not there, I did not cry. Love Mom and Grandma.
