She had five great-grandchildren, all of whom brought her great joy : Jacob, Christopher, and Allyson Bettencourt and Oliver and Sally Covert.
 Dorothy is now at peace, in God’s care. She was loved by many, and she will be missed by all who knew her. She will be remembered for her caring nature and lively personality.
