Many thanks to the good neighbors on Second Street and in town who gave Dorothy
Many thanks from the family to the caring staff at Paoli Health and Living.
Visitation and funeral services for Dorothy have been limited to private family only. Interment will be at Stampers Creek Cemetery. Due to the CDC mass gathering recommendation enforced by Indiana Governor, Eric Holcomb, no more than 10 people are allowed in a room at a time. We have made the difficult decision to have the funeral service and visitation be restricted to immediate family only. While this is not our ideal situation, we ask that you understand we are all new at this reaction to the pandemic situation at hand.
Gary Swick will officiate
