Dorothy was my dearest friend. We were classmates at St. John’s High School & Cadet Nurses at Wheeling Hospital. We were roommates for 3 years in Nurses Training. I have so many good memories.
God Bless You & Keep You, My Dear Friend Dorothy.

To the Fahey family, I am very sorry for your loss. Dorothy had such a beautiful soul. I’m the secretary for St. John and St. Mary’s parish. Whenever Dorothy would send in her contribution envelopes, she always wrote a little note to me. I had helped Dorothy out with a couple of things (just doing my job) and she wanted to pay me, but of course I refused and told her that I was just doing my job, so she had a mass said for me! She was such a special lady!!! Rest in the arms of our Lord Dorothy !!! You will be missed!!

Bob I was so very sorry to hear of your mom’s passing. No matter how you try, there just is no way you can prepare yourself to lose your mom. Alison, Bobbie my heart breaks for the loss of your grandmother… She was definitely a force and I know how much you girls meant to her. Beverly, I know the special bond you had with your mother-in-law. There are no words that will take away the pain of her loss. Please know that I am thinking about you all, and pray that your family finds strength and peace during this difficult time.

Dorothy was a beautiful person from the inside out. She was our children’s babysitter for many years and they adored her. She was extremely loving and generous. She was a great role model. May she rest in peace.

Bob, Beverly, Alison, Bobbi Leigh,
I was so sorry to hear of your mother/grandmother’s passing. She was a kind, beautiful woman. My mother looked up to her as she was one of her nursing instructors. I know how much Dorothy adored all of you. Cherish the good memories. You all are in my prayers.
