Dorothy "Dotty" Huckabone Obituary
(DOROTHY) DOTTY HUCKABONE Nov. 9, 1932 Dec. 30, 2013 Born and raised in Bradford, PA, Dotty was the 10th of 12 children. She was an avid ice skater, as soon as the creek froze each winter. As she grew older, Dotty worked as a "soda jerk," volunteered as a candy striper, and marched as a majorette in her high school band. Mutual friends introduced Dotty to a smart-alecky guy named Paul who she couldn't stand to be around, and who told his friends Dotty was "the girl I'm going to marry;" and he did, in 1951. Dotty relocated to Riverside, CA while her husband, Paul, was off serving his country in Korea. Paul and Dotty eventually became a family of five, with Mary Ann, Paul, Jr., and Joan. Dotty was a most active parent volunteer in every aspect of her children's life at St. Catherine's School. Most memorably, she led the "hot lunch ladies" in serving a hot meal to students once a week amidst the giggles and laughter of a group of Moms who loved their kids and loved being together. Dotty went on to become a beloved Kindergarten teacher at St. Catherine's School, educating hundreds of students and sharing her deep devotion to the Catholic faith, particularly the holy rosary. Dotty's proudest accomplishments were the advanced degrees that all of her children hold; the beautiful church, school, and convent that she and Paul worked tirelessly to build and support at St. Catherine's; the 7 grandchildren she loved to spoil; and her lifelong love for Paul. Dotty's life will be remembered at a recitation of the rosary on Sunday, Jan. 5 at 7:00 p.m. and a funeral mass at 10:00 a.m. Monday, Jan. 6 (both services to be held at St. Catherine's Church, Riverside).
