My husband Dan and I met Dorothy when she became a roommate of my Mother-in-Law, Lenore Corullo, at the Villa Maria. We got to know and love her in a very short time and hated to see her move to SkyView. She was such a sweetheart and looked out for Lenore when ever she needed something. At 95, she put many of us to shame with her wonderful memory. We visited with her a few times at the SkyView and she always made us feel that she was so happy to see us. Our only regret is that we didn't know her nearly long enough. Our deepest sympathy to your whole family for your loss. She shared some stories with us about her family. She loved all of you so much. We will miss her too. We had hoped to see her for a long time.

Dorthy & Oliver were friends of my parents, John & Viola Kangas, through Zion Luth Church in Ironwood, and neighbors of Jerry's parents, Leonard & Ingrid Korpela, in Hurley. As widows, Dorothy became an invaluable support system for Viola. They talked frequently & attended church & events there together. My Mom considered her one of her special "angels" for many years. We are ever grateful for that bond of friendship they shared.
Our sincere sympathy to the family as they grieve the loss of a very special woman who gave much love & friendship to others. God be with you all.

Dorothy and Oliver were friends of my parents. When I was a kid I thought they were related to us. Dad did not stop watching sports on Sunday except when the Harma's came to visit. Five years ago I introduced my husband to Dorothy. He had worked for Oliver in the mines and my Dad had worked for Oliver in the woods. Dorothy had a spread of baked goods for us and sent a box back to the hotel. She was a wonderful person and wrote the nicest letter in her Christmas card each year. Dorothy was a blessing to many people.
I am sure when she met our Lord he said 'Well done, good and faithful servant'. Rest in peace Dorothy.
In loving memory of a wonderful person. We will love you and miss you always. Aunt Dorothy brought a warmth with her where ever she was. Her house always smelled of something fresh baked. I remember when she got the job at Erspamer's Super Market, in the bakery department. Grandma had to be there on her 1st day. Walking in the door we were hit by that smell,warm fresh just baked. Grandma turned with this smile of hers from ear to ear "That's my daughter" I heard her say that a few times that day.
Grandma now has all her children with again. Love all the memories they brought us. God Bless Them.
