Dorothy was an avid golfer at Oak Park Country Club, played until her late 80’s. She belonged to the Infant Welfare Society, where she was a fundraiser. Dorothy loved her garden and spent much time planting and weeding. She attended Lawrence University in Appleton, Wisconsin and later transferred to Rosary College in River Forest where she graduated. Her greatest love however, was her love of painting. She spent many hours at her easel, mainly painting flowers from her garden and landscape.
