She loved watching Ohio State basketball games, sewing, reading and baking Christmas cookies to give to friends and neighbors. Dorothy had a very strong faith and was a 50+ year member of Mifflin Presbyterian Church, Gahanna. She was cherished by all those who knew her and will be remembered for her deep love of family, passion for a Buckeye win, and her always positive attitude and impish, contagious smile. The family would like to thank Otterbein-Gahanna and Mount Carmel Hospice for taking care of her during the pandemic when we couldn't. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you donate to your favorite charity in Dorothy's name to spread the love of heaven's newest angel.
