She liked to travel in the western US, and loved family trips to the Oregon Coast. She enjoyed gardening and preserving the produce. Dorothy joined Hillsboro Friends Church in 1966, and served in many positions, her favorites being teaching Sunday School and supporting the missions. She taught Children's Sunday School for 40 years. Her memory work drills gave generations of youth a great foundation for their knowledge of scripture. She supported scores of missionaries with prayer, funding, and letter of encouragement. Her cards and gifts for entire families marked holidays and special events. A highlight of her life was a trip across South America, while visiting her niece who was a missionary in Bolivia. Dorothy's Christianity was the basic force in her life. She continued to give her testimony in a meaningful manner even in her final days. She personified the faithful Christian servant. Memorial contribution can be made to the Hillsboro Friends Church Missions Committee.
