Dorthy Dunning was a special soul, almost an angel here on earth. Dorthy was an accomplished nurse, extremely skilled in caring for her patients. To her coworkers Dorthy was very helpful, always positive and always willing to help. Dorthy never had an unkind word to say about anyone or anything. She always looked for the best in people and situations. In addition to caring for people, Dorthy cared for those who were too weak and defenseless to care for themselves. Dorthy rescued animals and helped them finds forever homes and better lives. If you needed help, Dorthy was there for you. She was a tireless worker, dedicated and loving wife, and defender of the weak. We were fortunate to have Dorthy for the too short time that we had with her.
