    Marcia, I just found out today about your Mom’s passing. I am so very sorry. You & your family are in my thoughts & prayers. So glad I got to know Dorothy. She was a sweetheart! I got to visit with her a little bit while she was waiting for your brother’s visit with her. I always enjoyed talking with her. She will be missed! Cherish all the wonderful memories!

    Our family wants to extend our condolences to you on the loss of Dorothy. My Mother, Mardell Zuercher, lives in the room right next to Dorothy at Waunakee Manor. My Mom moved there end of June when my Dad passed away. Mom was so excited to be able to be in the room next to Dorothy and said they have been friends for years. My Mom, too, has vision issues so that was something they could always relate on and they would go to a social hour together and enjoyed visiting. My Mom, of course, is heartbroken to lose her friend. She sounds like she was an amazing woman who has had a long fulfilling life. You will all be in our prayers.
