Dorothy loved the farm life. She took care of her countless types of farm animals. She helped raised and butchered pigs, turkeys and chickens. She was always ready to help wherever she was needed. Dorothy enjoyed polka danes and music with Joey. She liked gardening, and mowing her lawn and working in the trees. She was a great cook and welcomed any guest and always treated them as part of her family. She enjoyed reading, crossword puzzles and collecting porcelain dolls.
