She had been a resident of Mauriceville all of her life until moving to Little Cypress as an adult and was happy to live in the small town close to her loved ones. Dorothy was a proud Christian and attended Faith Harbor Church every chance she got. For a long time, Dorothy took part in playing the base guitar at church and loved every minute of it. She also took part in helping raise all the young ones in the family.

The house was always sure to be full of comfort, love and laughter.
