Dorothy was eternally kind, patient and forgiving. After serving as deputy city treasurer for the City of Three Rivers for 34 years, Dorothy took care of children in her retirement. She will be remembered as being able to love the unlovable. She will always be loved in return.

She is also survived by nephews, Garry Mohney, Randy Mohney, Eugene Mohney, Bruce Mohney, Albert Dehaan; great-nephew, Craig Dehaan.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorials be made in memory of Dorothy to Scidmore Park, Three Rivers, or to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital (www.stjude.org).
