  1. Aunt Dorothy was an important part of my young life and certainly a friend during my adult life. The world was a better place when she was with us. Ned, Randy & Karen, I share your grief and offer a prayer for you comfort.

  2. Dotty, our friend and neighbor and a great wife to Ned. We’ll always remember her beautiful garden and how she shared her maiden hair ferns with us. They’re prospering in our garden right now. We have wonderful memories. Ron and Mary Lou Ellars

  3. Aunt Dorothy is a warm memory in my childhood. With a family of five children, Christmas was a fairly frugal affair. However, we always looked forward to our Christmas basket from Aunt Dorothy and Uncle Ned. It was one of our most treasured gifts. My mother, Virginia (Ned’s sister) thought the world of Aunt Dorothy, and though she lived far from us, she was always in our hearts.
