She lost her mother as a teenager and helped raise her two younger sisters until the family relocated to Kansas City. While working in the Army recruiting office she met her husband, Grant, during WWII. After the war, they continued to reside in Kansas City where her children were born, until they relocated to Columbia in 1954. Dottie continued to reside there until Grant’s death in 1995. Following Grant’s death, Dottie married Gordon, in Columbia where they lived until they moved to Overland Park, Kansas in 2014.

Dottie was a devoted wife and mother. She was active in the Cosmopolitan Club, and enjoyed social events at the Columbia Country Club. She also became an avid fan of the Missouri Tigers, holding season tickets in both basketball and football. She was a member of the Columbia Christian Church where she taught Sunday school and participated in the church women’s group.
