Dorothy passed away peacefully at the hospice house surrounded by family on Sunday March 1st, 2020. Dorothy was born to Eva And William Bower on July 30th, 1940 in Worland Wyoming. She grew up with sisters Loree, Helen and brother Clarence. Dorothy moved to Bellingham with 2 of her daughters in 1983 and she started working for DIS corporation on 1987. She then retired from DIS in 2001. Dorothy always taught her children and grandchildren that family was the most important thing, and her family meant everything to her.
