Dorothy was a life-long resident of Jessup, MD where she and her late husband Danny raised their 5 children. She resided in Mt. Airy with her husband Gary.  Dorothy loved being active in the community of Jessup, the Jessup Volunteer Fire Department Ladies Auxiliary and Ladies Auxiliary to the Anne Arundel Volunteer Firefighters Association where she was a proud member for 50 years, and the Lisbon Volunteer Fire Department Ladies Auxiliary.  She retired from NSA before moving into the medical field where she took care of the elderly.  Dorothy was full of life.  She loved spending time at her cabin in WV, traveling, camping, baking beautiful cakes, spending time with her family.
