Dorothy Ann Jirinec, 85, of Hampstead, NC, passed away Tuesday, December 4, 2012.
She was born on May 3, 1927, in Mineola, NY, daughter of William A. Hill and Beatrice Moore Hill.
Dorothy was originally from Long Island, NY, and moved to NC, in 1989 with her loving family. She loved running The Crystal Elephant Antique Store in Hampstead where she was CEO, with her loving son and partner. She had such a big heart and touched so many lives, putting others first before herself. She loved all animals, especially her dogs, Skippy, Buddy, Rough, Rusty, Captain, and our turtle, Little Speedy.
She was preceded in death by her loving husband, William Jirinec, her loving daughter, Carol Jirinec, and many cousins, Evelyn, Beatrice, Val, and her brother, Robert.
Surviving is her son William Jirinec who loved her more than anything in the world. She was irreplaceable, the best mom a son could ever have.
She will be dearly missed by all her special friends. She is back and reunited with her husband, daughter, and loved ones. What stories she has to tell them all about trips to Las Vegas with her son, laughing and enjoying all the great shows and playing and winning at slots. Love you always, your son, Billy.
A graveside service will be held at 11:00 a.m. Friday, December 7, 2012, at Oleander Memorial Gardens by Rev. Robert J. Kus.
Friends are invited to the Jirinec home following the service, 440 East Creekview Drive in Hampstead. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to a local Humane Society.
