Dorothy "Dottie" Mix, 82 of Mesa Arizona, passed away peacefully in her home March 15, 2013 with her husband and son by her side. She was born on May 4, 1930 in Detroit, MI to Harold and Mary (Keenoy) Evans. She resided in Detroit with her Mother and brother Harold E.

Dot and Earl ran their business Air King Service until Earl's retirement in 1990. After retirement they bought a motor home and travelled the country before settling in Mesa near their son as snow birds and returned to NJ every summer to be near their daughter.
