Dorothy was born on July 25, 1930 in Spring Hill, Minnesota to the late Alphonse and Sarah (Winter) Fuchs. She went to Country School 24 through eighth grade. She worked as a cook at Mike Miller Café in Paynesville, and also in Ashville, North Carolina and in Naples, Florida. She married Raymond J. Hess on November 26, 1959 at St. Margaret's Catholic Church in Lake Henry. Together they owned and operated Ray's Bar in Lake Henry until 1965. Then they bought and moved to her parent's farm in rural Lake Henry residing there until 1983. They moved back into town and purchased a motor home so they could spend time traveling. They also loved to go fishing and were proud supporters of the Lake Henry Lakers baseball team. Dorothy was a member of St. Margaret's Parish.
Dorothy treasured spending time with her family and especially her grandchildren. She loved attending Brandon's wrestling matches and baseball games and Bailey's volleyball and softball games.
Dorothy is survived by her son Paul (Connie) of Paynesville; grandchildren, Brandon and Bailey; sisters, Bernie Roeser of Paynesville, Irene (Jim) Jaeger of Lake Henry; many nieces, nephews and friends.
She was preceded in death by her husband Ray on February 5, 2000; and sister, Geraldine Dahl in 2002.
Memorials are preferred.
A warm thank you to the staff at CentraCare Health of Paynesville for their compassionate and professional care.
