Dorothy was an inspiration to many people, will be deeply missed and lovingly remembered by her family and all the very dear friends she made throughout the years.
Dorothy graduated from pharmacy school in 1943 and thoroughly loved her work as a pharmacist! She spent the majority of her career in Pasadena working at Las Encinas Hospital in the pharmacy department where she had many devoted patients and developed many lifelong friendships.
Dorothy loved to travel! Starting in 1974, she took 32 trips to every country imaginable. She was an active member of the Sierra Madre Women's Club, and the Church of the Good Shepherd in Arcadia. She volunteered for many jobs always helping out as needed. She also loved to sing and was a member of the church choir. Dorothy was very physically active. She loved to be outside, hiking when she was younger and continued to walk a mile or more many days of the week even up into the last year of her life. In addition, she regularly went to the gym with friends for many years to maintain her health and strength.
The family would especially like to thank Dorothy's wonderful caregivers: Dr. Mark McNamara and Nurse Pam Sargent. They were her rock.
A funeral service will be held at 3:30 p.m. on Tuesday,
