Dorothy was born on November 30, 1925, in Hillman, Michigan, the daughter of Ernest and Flora Curtis. She graduated from Hillman High School and moved to Owosso when both her parents and grandparents died.

She then worked at Owosso Savings Bank/Old Kent Bank where she earned Employee of the Quarter and Employee of the Year in 1985.
Dorothy was a member of Trinity United Methodist Church where she served as Sunday school secretary. She had a strong but quiet faith in the Lord and was a faithful attender for fifty years.
When Lloyd retired in 1986, they both enjoyed numerous bus trips around the country and to Toronto, Canada. They also were involved in the Owosso Senior Center (SCOA), where they enjoyed the lunches. Dorothy joined in on card games for 33 years and also participated in line dancing.
Dorothy loved family times, especially vacations in northern Michigan and picnics. She also loved her cats through the years, gardening and feeding the birds.
Dorothy is survived by one daughter, Susan (David) Olsson of Arlington Heights, Illinois, and two sons, James (Jeanne) Wing of Owosso and Russell Wing also of Owosso; also four grandchildren and twelve great-grandchildren.
