She was an avid lover of all animals big and small.

Marybeth and family,

I’m so sorry to hear of Dot’s passing. It was a pleasure to get to know her at Barclay. She was usually sweet and full of life, but at times she would share her cranky side. Totally understandable, as everyday life could at times be difficult. We loved her, and she loved us.
I never new she had worked at Strawbridges, but I can imagine her there.

I will miss visiting her, when I’m able to go back and visit. (I retired March 1). Sending my deepest sympathies to you all. Praying for God’s comfort in her loss. She will be missed!
Nurse Julie
