  • I have the best memories of Dory from when our family used to come down and visit everyone in Danville. What a great lady – smart, funny and always willing to say it like it is. Please know that she – and all of our “Danville” relatives, both living and passed – will always hold a special place in my heart.

    • Hi Beth. I am one of Dory’s nieces. Thank you so much for the kind words and memories. It brings comfort to us to know how loved she was.

  • Sorry this is so late but just learned of Dory’s passing. I always wondered when she was in the nursing home if she was able to be as much fun and good natured as I always remember her. Her life was full of sadness with the premature loss of her children and imagine it took a toll on her health the years of caring for Bob after
    his accident. Her dedication and kindness to Bob was more than remarkable. My whole life I always thought she was so pretty and kind, a trait carried onto her kids.

    I also loved Becky and Denny and imagine how much they must be missed.

    Again sorry this is so belated. Dory was a very special pretty woman!!
