Dorothy had a beautiful life filled with lasting friendships through her time at Harrison High School and Cincinnati Gas and Electric employment and many sports including softball and bowling. She enjoyed traveling. She married James at St. Therese Little Flower Catholic Church in 1963 and became a devoted wife and mother and very involved with the church. When she got promoted to Grammy to Joseph T. and Ryan W. her world was complete. She treasured her time with her family.
