She was preceded in death by her husband, Christopher in 1994. Dottie worked many types of jobs, but did ultimately retire from The Fullerton Tribune.

Dottie had many friends in Connecticut and Southern California and was affectionately known as "Aunt Dottie". Aunt Dottie was the family Angel who walked the earth with the gift of gab and acts of kindness to all and will truly be missed. Sadly, she leaves behind a sister, June York; nieces, Jean Quinn and Deborah Doll; nephews, Robert Matchett, Sandy Evarts and Douglas Evarts and their families, including great nephews/nieces and great/great nephews and nieces.
