Dorothy loved her job at Kirlin’s, where she was a store clerk for many years before retiring at the age of 86.

Away from work, Dorothy was an accomplished china painter. Dorothy was a member of the Missouri World Organization of China Painters for many years and always enjoyed attending their conventions. A talented artist, Dorothy met weekly with her china painters group at the Hannibal Arts Council to practice their craft. Dorothy also created many beautiful china dolls by hand that she even made clothes for.

An avid shopper, Dorothy could often be found at the store looking for anything that may catch her eye. A music lover, Dorothy always enjoyed attending Hannibal’s Music Under the Stars in the historic district and also following her favorite local band, “Rock n Roll Revival.” Dorothy was also a “Senior Citizen” member of The Lone Wolf Club.

Most of all, Dorothy simply enjoyed the time that she shared with her family and friends.

Dorothy was a member of the First United Methodist Church.
