She is survived by her children Debbie and Len, Diana and Don, Dori and David...

Dorothy was born in Los Angeles, CA where she lived until she met and married her husband of 57 years Jim. She lived a brief time in Texas but was proud that she lived most of her life in California. Dorothy was an awesome Grandma who all of her grandchildren loved to spend time with. She loved playing Bingo and going out to eat with her family. One of her favorite memories was that she spent her 60th birthday at a Clay Aiken concert surrounded by a much younger crowd of people (boy could she rock out). She is survived by her children Debbie and Len, Diana and Don, Dori and David (Munch), James, Cara, and Mark; her much loved grandchildren Derik, Dara, James, Christina, Tasha, Jessica, Leslie, and Rob; and her great grandchildren Alix, Jaylin, Keeli, Micaya, and Jake. She also leaves behind her sister Gay Lay and her sons Wendell and Wayne; her sister-in-law Frances Bever and her children; as well as many other cousins. Dorothy has gone to join her husband James, their daughter Doris and her parents who passed before her. At Dorothy's request she will be cremated privately and no memorial service will be held at this time. The family asks that anyone wishing to remember Dorothy join them where ever you may be at 6PM Saturday January 22, 2011 and lift a prayer as well as your favorite memory to the heavens and remember a person who lived and loved well. The family requests in lieu of flowers please make a donation in Dorothy's name to your favorite animal charity as her animals were dear to her heart. Arrangements are under the care of Pierce Mortuary Chapel, Eureka, CA 707-442-3751, www.piercemortuarychapels.com.
