I knew Dorothy for years as my Mom, Ruth Weber, was also involved with the Dickinson County Cancer Loan Closet and lived at Evergreen since 2005 up until last year. Dorothy was always a pleasure and I was so very happy to have known her and to see Mom enjoy her company there. So many great memories of a wonderful caring person who was really a joy to be around.

To the Edens Families, Uncle Don & Aunt Dorothy were the Greatest. Always looked forward to that 1st weekend in August, Our family reunions. We had great times visiting with all of you. The best were when we were invited to Iron Mountain for the reunion. Could not wait to give them a big hug. And the cinnamon rolls on Sunday morning. The best their ever was. They will both be in our hearts forever. The best part is they are together again. Love all of you.
