Winslow, Dorothy - Monrovia  
Dorothy Mae "Dottie" Winslow, of Monrovia, Maryland passed away on Friday, January 16, 2015 in the comfort of her home surrounded by family after 96 years well lived. Dottie Winslow was born on October 10, 1918 in Mt. Rainier as the youngest of thirteen children to Albert Preston and Ida Mae Bauman. She was the last surviving of her siblings. Dottie Winslow was married for 55 years to Maywood Preston Winslow. Preceded in death by her husband and two daughters: Joy Hines and Gaye Winslow, she is survived by her son: Chuck Winslow, of Monrovia, Maryland; eight grandchildren: Hope Stockman, Todd Fister, Angel Gelyon, Heath Hancock, Jennifer Plaisance, Ryan Hines, Laura Hines, and Daniel Hines; and six great-grandchildren: Keller Hancock, Amelia Hancock, Ava Gelyon, Blake Plaisance, Ethan Gelyon, and Samara Stockman. She worked as a Congressional page, spent years managing a myriad of businesses, often coordinated political and religious community events, and served as the President of the Business and Professional Women's Foundation of Maryland. Most notably, for over 20 years she enjoyed teaching Sunday school children about the love of Jesus. Dottie liked Frank Sinatra, big band music, and she could really "cut a rug." For many years she taught ballroom dancing. Her love of music, dance and theater inspired the same in her family. She was known affectionately as "Gram" and will be remembered as an avid gardener, vivacious sports fan, and connoisseur collector of seashells and four-leaf clovers. While Gram was much more comfortable in the garden or the stands than in the kitchen, she made fantastic banana bread, interesting Jell-O concoctions, and delicious Golden Rod Egg on toast. Her contagious spunk, quick sense of humor, and servant's heart remained with her to the very last hours of life. She made a lasting impression on everyone she met and left each of us with special memories just our own. She will be forever remembered in summer seashells, the Kentucky Derby, Christmas amaryllis, thank you notes, and Philippians 4:13. A Celebration of Life service will be held in her honor on Sunday, March 1st at 3:00 pm at Monocacy Valley Church in Ijamsville, Maryland. Memorial contributions may be made in Dorothy Mae's name to Take the Lead at P.O. Box 6353 Watertown, N.Y. 13601.
