What a lovely and gracious woman! She will be missed. She always trusted in her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. While living at Georgetown Place she always was a witness to Jesus Christ by attending the worship service there and inviting others to attend.She was a dear friend of my mother-in-law Doris Gellerman. Dorothy is now in the loving arms of the One she always trusted, Jesus Christ!
