Dorothy was born February 2nd, 1932, in Worland, Missouri to Thomas Seth Arnold and Velda (Peacock) Arnold. She grew up and lived in the small rural communities of Hume and Foster, Missouri before moving to Kansas City in the early 1950’s.
In 1975, after marrying the love of her life, Ralph, she became an avid Model A’er and belonged to the Heart of America Model A Ford Club. Dorothy and Ralph spent most of their time with their Model A family enjoying activities, tours and the Model A Regional trips. They put many happy miles on their Model A Ford, even when the unexpected breakdowns would occur, you could always count on the “A” family to get you going again.
Dorothy loved collecting stuffed bears, watching the Hallmark Channel, and listening to George Strait on YouTube. She was finally able to see George Strait in concert in Feb 2012, as a surprise birthday gift from her family, which brought her tears of joy.
Dorothy loved her family immensely. She always looked forward to family gatherings which supplied good food, lots of craziness and laughter.
