She was born in San Pedro, California to Charles Samuel Ingham and Katheryn Charlotte Merwin Ingham. She married John Pierce Shiveley at St. Peter's Episcopal Church in San Pedro in 1938.

She was an accomplished seamstress, sang in the church choir and with the Seattle Chorale. Dorothy enjoyed her role as family matriarch, grandmother and great-grandmother. From her childhood, Dorothy was active in Episcopal Church life. After his retirement from the Navy and from teaching, John became a deacon in the church and Dorothy took great pride in being the Deacon's Wife.
