AGE: 94 • Red Bank

Dorothy Gertrude Sasson, 94, entered into eternal life on March 23, 2017 in Red Bank. She was born in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn to the late James Brown and Gertrude (Huot). Dorothy moved to Middletown in 1956 where she remained until 1993 when she moved to Shadow Lake Village. Her last eight years were spent at Brandywine at the Sycamore Assisted Living.

Dorothy attended Our Lady of Perpetual Help Grammar School and was a graduate of Bay Ridge High School. Following school, she worked as a long-distance operator for ATT. Dorothy devoted most of her life raising her eight children. She was a dedicated volunteer in many community organizations including St. James Rosary Alter Society, Peace of Christ Prayer Group, Meals on Wheels, "FISH" (For I Shall Help) and Riverview Medical Center. Some of Dorothy's favorite pastimes were gardening, ceramics, sewing, baking, traveling, spending time at the beach and playing bridge with her friends. She had a great sense of humor which will never be forgotten by all who knew her.

The family wishes to thank all the staff at Brandywine who were so caring and supportive to Dorothy during her stay.
