My sympathies to Joan, Nick, Mark & families...I had the pleasure of being Dot's hairdresser for a number of years at Hair Performers in New Bremen. Dot was so much fun to be around and I have so many great memories of her! She had a wonderful sense of humor...just thinking of her brings a smile to my face! You all were so special to her...her face lit up anytime she talked about her family. Prayers for all.

Joan, prayers for healing and comfort. This happened so quickly, and it is my sincere hope that your mother passed peacefully. It was great to see her smile two weeks ago at Sycamore. Love to you all!~~ Jeri

To Joan, Nick and Mark I extend my sincere sympathy on the loss of your Mother. I served with Dot in the Church Choir right after Confirmation and much later after the formation of the Mission Team. I always knew Dot as outgoing and positive. I never saw her without smile. May God hold you in His arms as you go through this difficult time.

Dot was such a wonderful friend of our family, as was John, and I will miss her in this life. I have so many memories and stories, it's hard to know where to begin, and a lot of shared laughter. I sang in church choir for many years, and her longtime friendship with my Mother kept her in our lives all of these years.
