    Dorothy L. Ward, 87, of Delmar, IA, died on December 28, 2017, at Genesis Medical Center East in Davenport, IA.

    A celebration of Dorothy's life will be held sometime this spring, possibly in April. There is no visitation and burial was in the Evergreen Cemetery, Delmar, Iowa. The Carson Celebration of Life Center in Maquoketa is caring for the family.

    Dorothy Louise Ward was born on April 16, 1930 in Maquoketa, Jackson County, Iowa. She was the daughter of Walter and Ruth (Collister) Ward. She grew up in Delmar, Iowa, and graduated from Delmar High School and the Iowa State Teachers College in Cedar Falls, IA.

    Dorothy was an elementary school teacher. She taught for 25 years at Hayes Elementary School in Davenport, IA. She also taught in Elwood, IA and Delmar, IA and also served as a special needs and gifted student specialist in Delmar.

    She is survived by two sisters, Marjorie (Cleve) Morse of Marion, IA, and Alyce (Carl) Jenkins of Cedar Falls, IA. She is also survived by three nieces, Julie Morse, Rebekah (Clayton) Campbell, Monica Morse, and three nephews, David Morse, Donald Morse and Thomas Jenkins. She was preceded in death by her parents and a brother-in-law, Cleve Morse.

    Dorothy's retirement years were brightened by many helpful visits from her niece, Julie Morse, shopping and transportation assistance from friend Joyce Mitchell, and by the frequent expressions of appreciation she received from the many students she helped guide during her long teaching career.

    Memorial gifts may be directed to the Delmar United Methodist Church.

    Online condolences may be left at www.CarsonAndSon.com.

    CandleSuch a wonderful lady. Got to know her when I was the city clerk in Delmar.

    CandleYou have my deepest Sympathy! Dorthy was my teacher in Delwood though all my elementary. When I was a young girl I would ride my bike and stop at her place. She would always ask me to bring my dog Koko who I would put in my basket. She would always smile and her dad and her would sit on the front porch! She would always give Koko a treat and even took pictures of me and my dog in the basket on my bike! I think Koko enjoyed going to see her because of the treats! I would be tutored by her in the summer and she would have lemon tea for me or lemonade and shortbread cookie! I moved from Delmar and had my family but I always thought of her and how she was doing. I didnt see much of her but she was always in my thoughts! May God bless your family and Heaven has a wonderful teacher.
