The family travelled all over the world and when at home enjoyed the beach and boating on weekends. Dorothy loved to swim, water ski and walk the beach. She was an avid reader and also loved to dance.
Dorothy moved to Saint Petersburg, Florida in 1986 when David retired. They continued travelling and boating for many years and enjoyed the company of many of their friends who also retired in the area. Dorothy loved her house on the water in Saint Petersburg
