  • I am so sorry for your loss of Dot. She was a great friend of mine and I certainly can recall many good times together with Dot. We flew to New York together when we were young and single, we went to Jack & Jill Ranch in Michigan, bowled, played golf and she took care of the guest book when I married Roger.

    We are in Florida and I won’t be able to come to her funeral, which makes me very sad. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Dot was a wonderful and caring lady.

    Love, Beverly Snavely-Cole

  • Sleep well dear classmate. Dorothy was one of my most favorite classmates. She was a sweet girl who was so very kind and friendly. I enjoyed being with and around her during the few times I was able to travel across the country to attend the Class of 1950 reunions. We have already lost so many of the 36 that graduated that year. Now we have lost one of our best. Dorothy will be missed so much. My condolences to the Nunamaker and Ford families.
