She was predeceased by grandsons, Daniel and Michael Boltersdorf. Dorothea was a retired banquet waitress from The Yorktown Hotel, a housewife, an expert seamstress, and a great cook. When she was able, she enjoyed traveling and camping with her family. She was confirmed in the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod and her spiritual needs have been met by the Rev. James Driskell of First St. John's Lutheran Church, York. Pastor Driskell will conduct her funeral which will be held at the John W. Keffer Funeral Homes and Crematory, Inc., 902 Mt.

For those wishing to make a memorial contribution, because of her love for animals, Dorothea requested that funds be directed to the SPCA of York in her memory. "Brothers, we do not want you to be ignorant about those who fall asleep, or to grieve like the rest of men, who have no hope. We believe that Jesus died and rose again and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him. According to the Lord's own word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left till the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep. For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. Therefore encourage each other with these words." 1 Thessalonians 4. 13-17
