Faith along with family was the most important things in Dorothy’s life.  She was a long-time member of St. Peter’s Lutheran Church.  Dorothy had a great love of music and dancing, especially in kitchen with her children, nieces and nephews at times bringing the band home to continue the fun until the sunrise.  She and husband Jim frequently had people over for meals during the holidays and many other times as well.  At Christmas time, hundreds of cookies would be baked and shared with countless people.  In the summertime, it was Rice Krispy Treats and Kool aid that was on the menu.  Dorothy was the ultimate caretaker who looked after many children and supported so many people in their time of need.

Survivors include two daughters, Ginger (Peter) Ostrowski, Two Rivers; Gail (David) Arndt, Two Rivers; four grandchildren, Michael (Tara Willems) Ostrowski, Noelle (Corey) Evenson, Abigail (Alexander) Riegelman, Jordyn (special friend, Brandon) Arndt; four great-grandchildren, Lillian Evenson, Levi Evenson, Jack Riegelman and Otto Riegelman; one sister, Joan Krueger, Appleton; in-laws, Albert Kintopf, Barb Kintopf, June Krauel, Jane (Fritz) Sperber, Alan (Linda) Kintopf, Louise Kintopf, and Joanne Kintopf; and countless nieces, nephews, cousins, and godchildren. 

She was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Jim; seven siblings, Butch (Janice) Rockwell, Leo (Dode) Rockwell, Jack Rockwell, Mae (Walter) Haase, Marion (Al) Ash, Ruth McGuire, and Gene (Pat) Rockwell; In-laws, Owen Krueger, John Kintopf, Shirley Kintopf, Norbert Kintopf, Milt Kintopf and Carl Krauel.
