Dorothy was known for her cooking and held several jobs cooking in the area. One of her greatest joys was cooking at the Elk Creek School and at Scotty’s Grocery. She was an avid animal lover and many strays found a loving, forever home with her over the years. Those who knew Dorothy, knew she was opinionated and wasn’t afraid to tell you if she thought you were too full of yourself. She had no time for politics, hypocrisy or bad TV.
