    The previous message was from both of us and we failed to give our condolences to all the family. Dot was a cousin and always admired by our entire family. She will be sorely missed.

    Still miss the good times we had many years ago in Pendleton, MO.

    We take life for granted until a loved one passes away. After that, we have to rely on memories. Dorthy will always be in our hearts. She was a very independent person with lots of poise and confidence. She will be missed.

    Jeanne, your mother was always so pleasant to speak with when we met across the yard. Her level of energy was amazing. So sorry for the loss to you and your family. Your neighbors, Bill and Helen.

    My deepest sympathies go out to the Still and Watson Families. Dorothy Brown was a wonderful person and a “Grandma Dot” to many. She will be greatly missed.

    My most heartfelt condolence,

    Grandma Dot was one of the sweetest people I have had the pleasure of meeting. She would always greet with a smile, which I felt always invited a hug. I have always considered her to have been genuine, and will treasure my memories with her.

    Thank you for allowing her to brighten my family’s life. It was a gift being able to call her Grandma and will cherish that as well. I can?t imagine anyone having enough good things to say about her. She will be missed wholeheartedly.

  11. Janice on January 1, 1900 at 12:00 am

    She was such a lovely lady, so caring and friendly toward me and my family. I had no idea she was in a drum and bugle corps in school. How amazing – and special she was to many people.
    I’m grateful to have known her.

  12. Diamikia White on January 1, 1900 at 12:00 am
