She was a graduate of Vallonia High School with the class of 1949 where she was a cheerleader. She attended Indiana University. In her working career, Dottie taught elementary school in several cities where she and Dick resided. In Auburn, IN she gained a position at the Evening Star newspaper as a proof reader. She moved into a news reporter role and for many years was Editor for the ‘Living in Style’ Section. She also was a reviewer of music concerts and plays. When she and Dick moved to Bedford in 1986, she began a career at the Times Mail where she held many roles in advertising. In retirement, Dottie became involved in many charitable organizations, including being active on the boards of Altrusa Club and the Bedford Parks Dept. She volunteered at Dunn Memorial Hospital, the Historical Society and the Success & Opportunity at Reading (SOAR!) program where she taught many adults the delight of reading and being literate.
