In 1956 Dorothy and her friend, Francis hopped in "Dot's" 1953 Buick and headed West for Hollywood, CA in hopes of finding employment. Dot met Cecil Easley when her roommate and friend Francis begain dating Cecil's roommate. Dot and Cecil hit it off and were married Feb. 20, 1960 in Westchester, CA. They began their life together in a modest apartment in Hawthorne while she worked as a secretary for TRW. Cecil was working for Packard Bell at the time and was soon transferred to Thousand Oaks, CA. Dot and Cecil eventually moved there when Dot was expecting their first child. They purchased their first home in Carson, CA and Cecil began working for TRW, which meant Dot was able to stay home and raise four wonderful children. In 1973 Dot and her family hopped on a plane headed for the land down under . . . Alice Springs, Australia where Cecil continued his career with TRW. An avid golfer all of her life, she rediscovered her passion for golf and bridge while in Australia. She made life-long friends there in just three short years. Dot and family returned to the states in 1977 and settled in Torrance, CA. Dot enjoyed reading, crocheting, knitting, cooking, and of course doing crossword puzzles. She was one smart lady! She will be missed by all, including her lovable dog, Daisy.
