Aunt Dorothy Alway has a welcoming smile and a hug anytime we would visit. She had one of the biggest hearts I have ever been blessed to know. I love this lady very much and her presence will be missed beyond measure. Love you !! Ron

Shirley Nott on Jun 11, 2019

Dorothy was the very best sister and friend I was lucky to have in, and a major influence in my life. I have never known a more generous, kind, and thoughtful person in my life. She always had a positive outlook on life and able to find the good in everyone. She was a dedicated wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother to help in any way she could be of service. I loved her loving ways which always showed in her brilliant smile. I will sorely miss this sister for the remainder of my life.

Love always in my heart and soul,
Shirley Nott
