Obituary Condolences

Dorothy Ann, 82, a longtime resident of Kinnelon, died Tuesday, May 6, 2014 after a brief illness.
Born in Brooklyn, NY, Dorothy was the daughter of Egron and Isabella Lindgren. Raised in Brooklyn, she graduated high school and began working at the Barrett Building in Manhattan.

She will live on in the hearts of her family and be remembered as a loving wife, devoted mother, and cherished Mom-Mom.
Dorothy is survived by her husband, Carl; her son, Bruce and his wife Debby; her daughter, Debbie Hansen and her husband Jeffrey; her brothers, James and William Lindgren; her sisters, Isabelle Radcliffe and Eileen Paterno; her grandchildren, Andrew Hansen, Craig Hansen and his wife Ashley Caston Hansen, Alexis Deaton and her husband Darin, James Inpyn and his wife Joelle, and Bethany McQuirk and her husband Michael; and her great-grandchildren, Ayden Caston, Ryan Hansen, Natalie Hansen, and Juliette Inpyn.
