June 6, 1925 - January 14, 2012
Dorothy was born June 6, 1925 and joined Our Lord on January 14, 2012 after a short battle with cancer. She did not want surgery or any treatment and decided to "Let nature take its course." Her friends were with her to the end.
Dorothy started to work at the Oakland Tribune in 1966 and immediately became a beloved member of our Circulation family. After her retirement she kept herself busy volunteering at the Oakland Museum, taking German classes, and piano lessons, and serving lunch at a Senior Center. She loved gardening and taking care of animals, especially dogs, cats and birds. She was also an active member of the Church of the Cross.
Dorothy had a wonderful sense of humor, and enjoyed spending time with friends over lunch or on the phone. We will miss her sunny disposition, always positive outlook, and encouragement.
Dorothy's memorial service: Tuesday, February 14th, 2:00 PM at Church of the Cross, 1744 University Ave, Berkeley, CA 94710. Burial will be 9:30 AM at Sunset View Cemetery in El Cerrito.
