DOROTHY DAY Dorothy Francis (Hill) Day died Sunday, April 5, 2009 in Simi Valley, California after a lengthy illness. She was born January 19, 1923 in Tulsa, Oklahoma to Lillian and Archie Hill. She was a 64 year resident of Burbank. Dorothy was a dance teacher for over 55 years in Burbank and was well known throughout the San Fernando Valley. She put on shows for many years at both Burbank High School and John Burroughs as well as Luther Burbank Jr. High in the early days. It was nothing to see lines of people around the block waiting to get into the auditorium. Mo st of the shows were standing room only. She also donated her time to numerous groups, clubs, and organizations, including the City of Burbank. She could never say no to a request for one of her productions as she felt it was a wonderful opportunity for her students to perform. She never gave up on any of her pupils. If they wanted to dance she eventually made a dancer out of them. She remained connected with many of her former students until her death. Dorothy was a wonderful mother to her two daughte rs. She always had time for all of their activities even with her busy schedule. She was very proud of them when they followed in her foot steps and went into show business as professional dancers and entertainers. She was a wonderful mother-in-law and good friend to many. Whenever she was in a crowd there would be laughter and lots of fun...you could count on that. She was loved by all and will truly be missed. Dorothy is survived by her two daughters, Paula Temme (husband John) of Simi Valley, Ca., P amela Day of South Lake Tahoe, CA; grandsons, John Charles Temme (wife Shawna) and Alexander Miller; great grandchildren, Marissa, Addisyn, and Caden Temme; nieces, Linda Hefner of Oklahoma and Lee Dunham of Georgia; one great niece and three great nephews. WE LOVE YOU MOM. KEEP ON DANCING! A memorial service will be held at 2:00 pm on Tuesday, April 14, at the Little White Chapel, 1711 North Avon Street, Burbank, CA.
