SOUTHINGTON - Dorothea "Dot" (Brause) Czarnota, 89, of Southington, wife of the late Larry Czarnota, passed away Saturday, Nov. 29, 2014, at Connecticut Hospice in Branford.

Born in New Britain, daughter of the late Gustav and Anna (Sokolek) Brause, she moved to Southington in 1961. Dot was a World War II U.S. Army veteran. A longtime member of Zion Lutheran Church in Southington, she was active in Zion Lutheran's Women Group. Dot was co-creator with her husband Larry of the Famous Zion Lutheran Church Apple Fritters that are served at the Southington Apple Harvest Festival. She still helped oversee Fritter Production after 45 years. Dot also enjoyed sitting in front of the fire at her nephew Peter's home and was an avid golfer and former City Champ in New Britain.

Surviving is her daughter, Cynthia "Cindy" Miller and her husband, Robert, of Southington; several nieces and nephews; as well as grandniece, Lauren; grandnephew, Steven "Popeye"; great-grandnieces, Rachael and Leah; her faithful dog, "Minnie"; along with numerous friends, relatives and church family. Besides her husband Larry, she was predeceased by two brothers, Gustav and Donald Brause; and a sister, Lillian Yeske.

Her family wants to extend a special thanks to Marilyn Miller, Lois Serafino, Bev Clark and the Rev. James Debner for their extreme thoughtfulness during Dot's final illness.
