Dorothy lived in Tipton most of her adult life. She worked at the Tipton Green House for several years before starting her career at the Cedar Manor as a nurse’s aide. She worked at Cedar Manor for over 40 years before retiring.
Dot loved to grow flowers and was always busy trying to manicure her lawn. You would never see a dandelion or weed in her lawn. She was an immaculate house cleaner and was a very organized person. In her free time, she loved to go on bus trips and met many friends through her travels. Dot enjoyed playing cards at the Senior Center and having lunch on Sundays with her friends. She was active in the United Church of Christ in Tipton where she served on many committees throughout the years.
Left to cherish her memory are her two nieces, Susan (Curt) Nolte of Hampton and Sheryl (Robert) Dannen of Sheffield and five great nieces and nephews; Isaiah Nolte, Kasey Nolte and Gracie Nolte of Hampton and Ryan Dannen and Megan Dannen of Sheffield, along with many dear friends. She was preceded in death by her parents, sister, Lois Schulz and her brother in law, Charles Schulz.
