Send Condolence

Deeply sorry to learn of Dotty's passing. We were especially fond of her. Dotty was unique; she was that rare person who was absolutely content with her life. She always smiled and laughed; she was immensely satisfied with everything her children did; loved her grandchildren and loved to be part of their lives. She and Alan had great years together. She was a superb bridge player; she loved to encourage us to "go on -- go to game!!" She had great spirit and zest for life. We missed her when she and Alan moved to Pittsburgh, and now we will miss her even more. Rest in peace, dear friend ... Alan and Charlotte Gendler
