I met Dorothy in the 1960's when we were both "adult" students at Ohio Northern.  What a delightful person.  I saw her more often when John and Paula lived and worked in Richwood. I think of her with a smile on her face and a twinkle in her eyes.  You must have pleasant memories.  God bless!

I have so many fond memories of Toad, as  she was a dear friend of my family. My father gave her the nickname “hop toad” when she was an infant. Her outspoken manner, charm & wit, as well as her friendship will be  truly missed.

Mrs Fields was my favorite teacher, 2nd grade. I was not a strong reader in 1st grade, felt inferior. But Mrs Fields worked with me, encouraged me and I caught up. From then on, I knew I could achieve my potential.   I am sorry for your loss,🙏

I am so sorry to hear of Dorothy's passing.  She was a special lady.  I taught kindergarten across the hall from Dorothy and learned so much from her. She was a good mentor and friend.  My greatest memory was when she came to a NU Football game (years later) and I was working the gate.  She told me her son-in-law said she could get in free.  I jokingly asked her "And just Who is your son-in-law?"  She quickly informed me that it was John Roller- My Principal.  I never knew this until that game.  We laughed about that for years.  She will be greatly missed.  My thoughts and prayers go out to all her family.

TO PAULA, JANE, NANCY AND THE WHOLE FAMILY...WE WERE SO VERY SAD TO HEAR ABOUT YOUR MOM.  NANCY, WE JUST TALKED ABOUT HER A FEW WEEKS BACK DURING OUR VISIT.  SHE WAS SUCH A KIND SOUL AND HAD THE BEST SENSE OF HUMOR.  WHAT A HOOT!  I REMEMBER WHEN WE WERE YOUNGER AND I WOULD COME OVER TO YOUR HOUSE, SHE WOULD ALWAYS MAKE ME LAUGH WITH HER STORIES.  SHE WILL BE LOVED AND MISSED BY MANY.

Sorry to hear about the passing of Dorothy. She was a sweet and simple lady who enjoyed life. Dorothy was my second grade teacher and made a major impact in my life. Carolyn and I have always stayed in contact with her, We would visit with Dorothy when coming to LaRue and enjoyed going to breakfast with her. She is with Paul now resting in peace. God has an amazing angel with him now.
