She worked in a bakery as a cake decorator honing her artistic abilities. She married Leonard Stringer and they were happily married for 53 years until his passing in 2008. Together they had four boys, Charles, Don, Delbert, and Roger. She loved her sons very much; one of her greatest joys was being a mother and taking care of her boys, including her husband, Leonard. Some of Dorothy’s fondest memories was being able to travel; she went on a cruise around Europe and was able to attend a wedding for her great-granddaughter in Hawaii.
