Dotty was a very special person in Otto's life. She and her husband Les a.k.a. "Duffy" were witnesses for his parents marriage and provided guidance, on and off, through most of his developing years.
She survived raising her own two sets of children, mentored others kids and loved/endured a husband that never quite grew up. Despite these challenges, she maintained a great sense of humor and personal grace. She was a feisty gal, who was vital to the end at 88 years.
Best of all, she was a real pal.
