We are very sorry to hear about Dorothy. She has always been one of our favorite people.
She once explained that Ken was a special person to her and Jim and later to her and Walt. They always enjoyed following whatever he was doing, which included creating a family of his own. She was steadfast in her kindness to us all.
One of the graduation parties we threw was on a summer weekend that turned out to be a busy one for many who were invited. Only a handful were able to attend out at the Spring Valley Nature Center. One of them was, of course, Dorothy, who drove all the way from Skokie. She added her loving presence, making it an even more special event.
Dorothy was lovely both outside and inside. We joked with her that she had found the fountain of youth, which apparently is somewhere in Skokie. Her personality was just as lovely - warm, gracious, and sincerely caring. She will be much missed as well as very well remembered by us.
Ken, Jan, Cassiopeia, Leila, and Thea
Dear Michael, Donna & Kathy,
Although we did not see a lot of each other your Mom, Aunt Dorothy was such a very special person. I remember her well from when I was little and she and Uncle Jim would have the whole Leo Barry clan over for gatherings. Later when Aunt Dorothy married Walt we all got to know and love him too, especially his harmonica playing. Aunt Dorothy was always so kind and caring. My Mom Pat Barry, & my siblings shared memories together of your Mom, Aunt Dorothy, the other evening on our family conference call. We all had many happy memories of her. Our families thoughts and prayers are with you all, Leonette Barry Walsh
