September 20, 2012
Dorothy Ann left us on September 20, 2012 and went to her final resting place after a long and courageous battle with Alzheimer's. Dorothy was born in Sturgis, South Dakota on January 31, 1934 to Omer and Naomi Osgood. Dorothy's family moved around a bit - she lived in Iowa, Minneapolis and Chicago before settling in Sparks, Nevada in 1961. Dorothy was a stay at home Mom taking wonderful care in raising her three T's until 1976. She then took a job with the State of Nevada in the Child Welfare Division. Dorothy enjoyed reading, long walks, crocheting, fishing and her occasional secret trips with her good friend Bobbi. She also was a big supporter and fan in all of her children's and grandchildren's sports and activities.
Dorothy was a proud and loving Grandmother of five. Her parents Omer and Naomi, her brothers Merlin and Ronald Osgood and sister Jeannette Burge, preceded her in death. She is survived by her brother Jerry Osgood, husband Richard Ciesynski, sons Tom Ciesynski (Kim), Maxwell and Teagan, and Tim Ciesynski (Stacie) and Aubrie, and daughter Theresa Cervantes (Frank), Cassie and Brooke. We would like to thank the Arbor's Memory Care staff and Vista Care for their love and tenderness. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to
