Everyone enjoyed their times with Dorothy. She was her happiest when she spent time with her children, grandchildren and great-grandchild. She also enjoyed attending the
annual Sollberger Family Reunion. Her proudest accomplishment was her work as a volunteer advocate for children with special needs during her affiliation with the Dayton area Association for Children with Learning Disabilities (ACLD).
Dorothy's family would like to give a special thank you to caregivers Molly, Katie, Julie and the staff at Hospice of
