MEMORIES: Good memories can give us comfort. We cherish the short years we had with Dorothy( Bill and Peggy Rupp) from 2012 -2017, distance kept us apart. During these years we got to know each other well. We laughed, cried and told many stories of our past and present.Dorothy even trusted me enough to open up her heart and let me in,as I did her. She shared with me about her life as well as her families lives. We had something special together. It is called LOVE. Bill and I are saddened of Dorothy's death. We are more saddened for her daughters, Donna and Sharon. Love each other as family should. Dorothy rest in peace. Your loving sister Peggy Rupp

I loved to visit with Aunt Dorothy when she would come to visit my grandparents; her Uncle Buster and Aunt Levadell Ivey. I will cherish my memories of her, as I have all these years.
