Dorothy graduated in 1953 from Casey High School.  Her working career included Casey National Bank, the Phone Company, and as a EIU Security Phone Operator for the Campus Police.  She and Bob co-owned Bartley Garage and owned several rental properties together.


Dorothy and Bob loved to go antiquing together, and spending time with family, especially at Christmas, was very important to her.  She enjoyed following her children’s and grandchildren’s activities.


The family would like to thank Sarah Bush Lincoln Hospice, the Hilltop Nursing Home staff, and the Charleston Fire Department Paramedics for their compassionate help.
