Memories Timeline


  1. We will not be able to attend visitation or services, but do want to express our deepest sympathy to the family. Dorothy was a great friend to our family!

  2. Aunt Dorothy Detring will be deeply missed. I remember her cheerful personality. She was the "messager" for our Detring family. She would travel and visit kinfolk and then update us on the relatives that we haven't seen in decades. We would all keep in touch through Aunt Dorothy's visits. When the girls were small, she would bring each one a gift. We will miss Aunt Dorothy caring nature and the news of distant family she shared.
