  1. Nancy and I are sorry to hear of Dorothy’s passing. She was a lovely lady and always pleasant to be around. May she rest in peace.

  2. I have many fond memories of her as a child growing up in Hannibal. She allowed us to get away with a lot playing in the limber yard. I remember Fall and always stopping to buy a beautiful bunch of flowers. Thinking of you all and sending sincere sympathy, Kathy (Lyons) and Bill Kidd

  3. I too am very sorry to hear about Dorothy. What a wonderful person. She is looking over all of you now the way she did when she was hear. She will be missed.

  4. Nancy was a wonderful woman and loving mother, she always treated her children’s friends as if they were her family. Never forget the many enjoyable times I spent at her home. So very sorry to hear this
