DALLAS - Dorothy E. Krupp, 83, of Dallas, peacefully passed away at her home on February 15, 2013. She was born to Carl & Greta (Cederberg) Johnson on September 3, 1929 in Chicago, Illinois. While she was in high school, her family moved to Torrance, California, where she graduated from high school and met and married Wayne Daniels. To this marriage was born 4 children, Sandra, Donna, Douglas, and Carol. They later divorced and she married Jim Krupp.
Dorothy was a vivacious, fun loving, energetic person, who loved her family dearly. She was the rock, the mediator, the peacekeeper, and the glue that kept the family connected. She taught her children of their Swedish heritage and taught them to dance the Waltz, the Polka, and other special dances. Dorothy loved everyone she knew, never saw the faults in others, and was always very understanding. She loved her canine companions, especially Misty, her Pug / Boston Terrier mix.
She is survived by her children, Sandra (John) Cook, of Fort Worth, Texas, Donna Daniels, of Hot Springs, Arkansas, Douglas (Sue) Daniels, of Dallas, Oregon, Carol (Steven) Cleland, of Susanville, California, as well as Sheila (Drew) Griffith, Cynthia (Jim) Schene, and Virginia (Daniel) Medina. She is also survived by her 19 grandchildren and numerous great grandchildren and a loving extended family. She is preceded in death by her husbands, Wayne Daniels and Jim Krupp, and her son Peter Krupp.
A private family service will be held. Memorial contributions are suggested to the Oregon Humane Society, in care of Dallas Mortuary Tribute Center, who is caring for the family. Online condolences may be left at www.dallastribute.com
