My condolences to the family of Mrs Dorothy. I worked at Medical Center hospital for a few years and I saw her smiling face many many times, she will definitely be missed. Even after I left Medical Center every time I went to visit I always asked my old co-workers about Mrs Dorothy she was a very sweet person.

Dorothy was truly a “Lady” in every sense of the word. She made everyone around her feel special. The time she worked as a volunteer at MCH was invaluable. I loved working with her. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her.
