Gettman, Dorothy Joetta Bernice  
Dorothy Joetta Bernice (Butz) Gettman, 83, of Greeley, Colorado, passed away on Dec. 5, 2014. Dorothy was born Dec. 4, 1931, to her late parents, Benjamin L. Butz and Frieda (Getz) Butz, at her grandparents' dairy farm near Brighton. She became a devoted child of God when baptized at Zion Lutheran Church in Brighton on Oct. 30, 1932, and was confirmed at Zion on March 25, 1945. She continued her service to God throughout her life, attending Grace Lutheran Church in Hudson and Trinity Lutheran Church in Greeley. Dorothy began school at Denver Public Schools and 4-Way School in Ione before transferring to Zion Lutheran School in Brighton, where she attended third through eighth grades. She graduated from Brighton High School with the class of 1949. After attending Central Business College in Denver, she held several bookkeeping positions, including for the family farm business, before retiring from Henrylyn Irrigation District.
