Our thoughts and prayers are with you Tommy and Jimmy. Aunt Dotty was one of a kind and will be greatly missed. Love you both. Kristin Hill and family , February 24, 2021 Please accept my condolences for the loss of your mother, my Aunt Dorothy. I greatly admired her beauty and charm growing up, and she was always very nice to me. As you know, she and my mother, Mary Ann, were only 17 months apart in age and grew up as close sisters. She lived for a time with my parents before she became a stewardess and met her love, Uncle Jim, while I was an infant. I heard many nice stories about that time from both of my parents. My dad also thought very highly of her and Uncle Jim. I know she is in a happy place now, and at peace. Eileen Scherlen Sommer, February 20, 2021 Our condolences to her passing. She was the sister of my mother, Mary Ann Martin Scherlen, who also passed away. Allan Scherlen, February 20, 2021 Great memories of Aunt Dottie since I was a kid. She’ll be sorely missed. Mike & Valerie Martin, February 20, 2021
