While working as a Layout operator at Lucent Technologies in North Andover, Dorothy grew her family and had two children, Gary and Derek.

She was an active member of New England Bible Church in Andover, where she attended as many events and bible studies as possible.  Dorothy always helped out at the church and donated her time to help others.
