Southerland Family Funeral Homes and Crematory - Panama City Obituary

Mrs. Dorothea “Dotty” Lohnstein, 83, of Lynn Haven, FL, passed away peacefully in her sleep on Saturday, January 11, 2020.  She was a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother to her family. Mrs. Lohnstein was born February 19, 1936 in Brooklyn, NY to immigrant parents and was a first-generation U.S. Citizen.  She leaves behind two daughters, four granddaughters and five great-grandchildren. Mrs. Lohnstein worked in the school system in Rockaway Township, NJ at Birchwood Elementary and eventually moved to Copeland Middle School. She retired in 1992 and kept in contact with all her friends in New Jersey.   Mrs. Lohnstein was an avid golfer and loved to go to Kaleidoscope Theatre. She enjoyed spending time with her great-granddaughter, Brooklyn, every day after school. If you ever wanted to put a smile on her face just bring her a $1 scratch off ticket. Mrs. Lohnstein was a feisty, tiny woman who was unforgettable. She loved her family and friends above all else. Just don’t turn her food down or she might have been offended.  Her goal in life was for everyone to leave her house with a full belly and smile. Dotty will be fondly remembered for her quick wit and compassion for her family and friends. She leaves behind a void that will never be filled.  A memorial service will be held at 5:00 p.m., Thursday, January 16, 2020 at Southerland Event Center in Lynn Haven.  The family will receive friends 1 hour prior to the service.
