She loved to travel. She and her husband, James, traveled throughout most of the United States and to many international locations. Her favorite destination was Ireland. She enjoyed camping with her husband and children and later in life shared her love of the outdoors with her grandchildren.

Hello Jim, Kevin, and Maureen -

I am so sorry that Dorothy passed away. I have been thinking about all of you since my dad called to give us the news last week. I can tell you that the whole Strine family is mourning with you. Dorothy was like a second mom to Sean and me growing up. I will always remember he giving us rides up the hill after school and giving us kool aid while we were swimming in your pool or just hanging out at your house. Dorothy was just a wonderful person who cared about her friends and neighbors. May God's Peace be with all of you and your families during this time. We are so sorry for your loss. Love, Dani and Neil Strine

Dear Jim, Maureen and Kevin,
I was so sad to read about Dorothy, She was a wonderful person. I think of the times we would work on school projects together, as early as elementary school. And the times Kevin would be here with "the gang". What good times they had. You are a super family and I have enjoyed knowing each and everyone of you. My deepest sympathy. She will be missed.
