Dorothy is also survived by her son Gary (Frances), daughter Gail Kramer (Larry), Grandchildren Robin (Bernadette), Geoff Kramer (Chelsea), Allison Kramer (Trevor Lees), Stephanie Sturgis (Jason).

One of Dorothy’s greatest joys was the birth of her two great granddaughters in December 2010 and February 2011, Gwyneth and Olivia.
