I was saddened to hear of your Mom's passing. Your Mom was a wonderful, talented,helpful and friendly neighbor.
We lived on Ontario St, just up from you, and we were good friends with your mom , dad and all of you. Several of you girls babysat for our 7 kids and we were involved with many of you and your dad in scouts and Little League, and your Dad and sons did remodeling work at our house.
I will remember your Mom in my prayers and wish all of you good health and safety.
With deepest sympathy,
David Carpentier Sr.

Condolences to Hochmuth family. Dorothy played a very pivotal role in my sister Louise's life at a critical time in her young life. She was a single mom with 2 small children in 1970 and she helped care for the children while Louise went to work. But most importantly, she introduced Louise to brother-in-law Bill Hochmuth who was also a single dad. They enjoyed 43 years together and Dorothy played a part in rescuing them both. The Domingos family will always be grateful to Dorothy. She & Louise are now enjoying their reunion together. With Sympathy, John & Irene (Domingos) DeGraff

Our deepest sympathy to all of Dorthy's family at this difficult time. She was a dear woman and we know she was loved by all her family and all who knew her. I was fortunate to spend time with her and Ann when she visited Poland, Ohio. We had fun on our little excursions around the area. Dorothy and all of you are in our thoughts and prayers.
