Dorothy Bess Cummings

It is with great sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Dorothy Bess Cummings (Hornecker) on Saturday, Aug. 9, 2014, at her home in Prunedale. Dorothy was 89 years old. She was born Feb. 5, 1925, in Geneseo, IL.

Dorothy is survived by her son, Timothy Cummings and Timothy's twin sister, Teri (Cummings) Gesling.

At the time of her passing she also enjoyed the love of her three grandchildren and one great-granddaughter. As a nurse of many years, she often gave back to the community as she struggled to raise four children as a divorced professional woman.

She will be sorely missed by all who loved and knew her.

Her cremation will take place at Struve and Laporte Funeral Chapel with no service or memorial, as per Dorothy's wishes.
