My thoughts and prayers are with you in this difficult time. May you find comfort in your precious memories and knowing that Tucson is a much better community because of her. May she rest in peace.
Dorothy was an amazing woman and a great boss; I had the honor and privilege to have known her and to work for her and her son John. She always had a smile on her face and full of spunk. With her passing it will be a great loss to Tucson and the community and everyone that she touched. My deepest condolences to her entire family, she will be greatly missed.
My deepest sympathies to the family.
Such a warm, generous, compassionate light was extinguished, when Dorothy Hunt Finley passed away. My deepest, most sincere condolences to her family. Her great works will live on, by the many lives she touched and changed. May God's eternal light shine on her forever.
I will forever remember Mrs Finley as a mentor and a friend. She encouraged my writing from the fifth grade at Shumaker well into my adulthood. She always greeted me with a smile and a question "What have you written lately?". I will miss that smile and her ability to keep me motivated.
Slan abhaile, my friend, safe home... You will be sorely missed
Mrs. Finley was a wonderful, beautiful women. We will deeply miss her. My condolences and prayers to her son and the family. I have many memories of her at White School when I was a student there.
To John, Audrey and the entire Finley family, you are in our thoughts and prayers. May the memories of Dorothy hold you close in the days ahead. Dorothy was a remarkable woman who was a mentor to many, including me. I met her through Rotary many years ago and admired her thoughtfulness and kind heart. I will miss her warm embrace and concern for humanity. God bless you!
Dorothy was an amazing woman and this is a huge loss to Tucson, the community and all who knew her. I am deeply saddened.
Dorothy was a great friend to all of us at Davis Monthan AFB. She helped so many people over the years and I will always remember her for being very caring, kind and giving. We will miss Dorothy and will always remember her in our hearts and prayers. May God bless Dorothy and her family.
I will remember Mrs Finley always. She was a very positive influence in many students lives, including mine. My condolences to her family.
I loved Ms Finley. I got to know her well after three different Davis-Monthan assignments. She was always very kind and generous to the Davis-Monthan team. I remember in 2002 she visited our 41 ECS squadron for a Fini-Flight celebration, and she decided to replace all the worn out furniture in our lounge. And in 2003 when most of our squadron returned from the invasion of Iraq, she decided to throw the welcome home party for the unit, and paid for all the food and drinks. I loved her spirit, and will always cherish her autobiography.
TO ALL OF DOROTHY FAMILY MEMBERS SHE WAS A GREAT PERSON AND BOSS. THE LADY WAS VERY CARING AND KIND PERSON WHO HELP SO MANY PEOPLE OVER THE YEARS!! I GLAD THAT I GOT TO MEET AND WORK FOR HER!!! SHE WAS THE BEST IN MY EYES!!!! SHE WILL BE TRUELY MISSED BUT NEVER FOR GOTTEN!!!! MAY GOD BLESS HER AND JOHN AND THE WHOLE FAMILY!!!
It isnt very often I recognize a name in the Tucson obituaries since moving away over 20 years ago. However when I saw this name I was immediately taken back in time when Mrs Finley was my principal at JE White school some 40 years ago. She made a difference in my adult life and I believe she was there for my sisters too. May God bless you with peace during this difficult time.
My well wishes go to you and your family at this time. If I may at this time ask for your indulgence. Was Dorothy related to Hill Hunt of Sulphur Spring valley? Time frame 1910/1940? I have some family history to share if & when you feel like it. My number is 886-1431
The loss of Dorothy will be felt ofr many years to come. I first met her in the late 70's as she was my son's principal at Schumaker School. Such a kind, caring,interesting and giving lady. I would see her from time to time andthe first words out of her were "How is my Jason doing?" It has been several years since I have seen her and I was just talking about her 2 days before her passing to a former co-worker.
May she R.I.P. and continue her work in Heaven for there is no stopping her.
Such a Great Legacy she leaves behind for her Family and Friends.
To the Family of Dorothy, Mary and I want to extend our blessings for a wonderful woman. God Bless
Tucson's loss will extend beyond the tears of sorrow. Her empty leadership chair may never be filled. May her spirit continue to protect DMAFB and the 162nd AZ ANG. An honor to know and work with Dorothy Finley. Always, our love and respect.
