She was born on June 5, 1922 in St. Charles, Kentucky daughter of the late Dinsmore (Dee) Woodruff and the late Ruby (Stringfield) Woodruff. Dorothy was a homemaker and also worked at Shane Uniforms Co., in Evansville, Indiana and Wayne Home Equipment in Fort Wayne, Indiana. She is a member of North Park Community Church (Fort Wayne) and previously a Charter Member of both Shoaff Park Baptist Church (Fort Wayne) and Southgate Baptist Church (Springfield, Ohio), and a member of Blackhawk Baptist Church (Fort Wayne).
Dorothy volunteered extensively as a church member, handling all the accounting for Shoaff Park Baptist Church for many years, sometimes serving as the Nursery Supervisor, and at times a Sunday school teacher.
