    I will not be able to attend services on Saturday. I work with Dorothea at Maquoketa Medical Center. Growing up she was my 4-H leader and I remember having a meeting at her house on a hot summer day and we all watched a tornado cloud up high. Time passes. My sympathy to the family.

    Sorry to hear about Dorothea, she was a nice neighbor whom I used to babysit for, prayers to her family.

    Dorothea had an amazing gift of making people feel comfortable. At the Medical Center, in the neighborhood, everywhere. She was always friendly and ready for a chat. She will be greatly missed.
    We send you our deepest sympathy at this time of loss.
