In her "retired" years, Dorothy worked various jobs for AARP and finally retired from the Livingston County Senior Companion Program at age 92 where she was doing office work at the Dogwood Day Treatment facility. Though a hard worker, Dorothy always found time to relax and have fun. In her younger years, when her work shifts were over, she loved to go out dancing with her sisters, first husband Joe, and friends. Later, accompanied by her husband Frank, Dorothy traveled across the US, visiting monuments and deep-sea fishing off the eastern seaboard. There were always many photos to share when she returned from these trips, excited to share her adventures that often-included visits with far-away family and friends. She was an avid reader, a crossword and jigsaw puzzle expert, and was always caught up on the latest news and crime dramas on television. Dorothy also loved to craft. Her crafts were proudly displayed all over her home including beautiful crocheted blankets. She had a flair for fashion; family, friends, and co-workers will remember her in her carefully coordinated outfits complete with matching jewelry. Family history and traditions were important to Dorothy. She proudly hosted Thanksgiving dinner in her home into her 90s. Her house and room at the Nursing Home were filled with pictures of her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren and she loved telling stories about them to everyone who visited. She also had a sweet tooth, always with a bowl of candy to share nearby. Dorothy loved her country and was a member of the Daniel Goho Post 87 American Legion Auxiliary.
