Known to our family as Aunt Dot, so many of my childhood memories have our family get-togethers and celebrations, and my Aunt Dot and Uncle Martin were part of those memories. From the many holidays, camping and fishing trips and Golden Wedding anniversary celebrations, Mother's Day celebrations with her and my Mom at church, Aunt Dot was there.

You will be profoundly missed by all of your family. We love you.

Your niece,
Dorothy Zalace Lozada
