They later divorced in 1988 and Dorothy moved to Elk City making her home. Dorothy was a member of the Bolton Friend Church for over 50 years. Being raised a farm girl, it was not unusual to see Dorothy out doing chores on the farm each and every day. She loved tending to the cattle, goats and other livestock. She loved animals, volunteering her time at AWOL and the VFW Auxiliary and giving her advice to other farmers who called her needing help. Dorothy will be truly missed by all that knew her.
