Dorothy was born March 3, 1943 in Ft. Pierce, Fla., to Quentin and Hazel (Scott) Salter.
She and Rudy lived and raised their children in western Douglas Co. and Dorothy loved telling her life story with pen and paper. She enjoyed her years in Florida on the ocean and she took many trips to Swan Creek with her children while they lived in Ava, but mostly she loved her time with her children and grandchildren.
Dorothy was preceded by her parents and a niece, Michelle.
