Dot was an Old Orchard fixture! She would hold court on her porch with wit, charm, warmth, and grace. She made everyone who stopped by feel special. We are sad to hear of her passing....she will be missed by many. Karen, Tim, Beverly and families, please accept our condolences. Hers was a life well lived and we hope fond memories will sustain you through this heartache. Claudia and Jim
