Dorothy retired from Civil Service after 30 years. She served on the Oklahoma Women Bowling Association and was secretary of the Shawnee Womens Bowling Association for 25 years. She now belongs to the EGA of America. In her retirement years she spent her timeless hours enjoying her sew-and-sew group, bowling league, church services, family genealogy and card games of any kind. Dorothy will be remembered being happiest when she was helping others and spending time with family and friends. If you were a youngster and had not experienced one of her hugs, you had truly missed out. She was a stoic figure in our family that could be counted on at a moments notice. Although our family will forever miss her, we are comforted in knowing she is with the Lord and her loving husband and son.
Survivors include her sisters, Gerona Fowler and husband Howard of Shawnee, OK, and Carolyn Childers of Conroe, TX; brothers, Bert Wellman and wife Joyce of Shawnee, OK, and Gene Wellman and wife Claudia of Shawnee, OK. Numerous nieces, nephews and other relatives and friends also survive.
In lieu of flowers the family wishes donations be to the Make A Wish Foundation.
