    I joined Inglewood Golf Course in 1991 and met Dorothy there. I remember her fondly as a pleasant upbeat lady to golf with and was saddened to read of her passing in the newspaper. I know she hasn’t golfed for the last ten years but I wanted you to know that many of the members of Inglewood remember her with fondness and affection. Sincerely, Sylvia

  5. Leo and Sue Jacques :

    We first met Dorothy, along with her husband, Andy in the 1950’s when she was a dear friend of Sue’s mom Kay Morton. Dorothy and Andy were wonderful people and great friends. Kay got Andy a job at the Glencoe Club where he was treasured. Dorothy and Kay were great friends and shared many memories. We remember Dorothy as a lovely person who love life and was an avid golfer. She always had a wonderful smile and faced life “heads-up.”
    Rest peacefully Dorothy and look down on us all as a gentle star.
