To the family of Dorothy Kemper, I need to express my feelings for the loss of one that was very close to my mother and father. Dorothy was like a daughter to them. As a teenager, she lived with us in Kansas City and was part of our family for a time.
With deepest sympathy for your loss,

Joseph C Seigh and Family

Dorothy was my cousin, my Grandfather Glenn Steinman was her uncle. I remember when I was no older than 5 when my Grandfather took me swimming and I slipped off the step in the shallow end and Dorothy pulled me out by my ankle, saving me from drowning. I don’t know if I ever told her thank you but she saved my life that day, and I am so forever greatful to her. I was also given her middle name as my middle name. I am sorry to hear of her passing and wild like to send prayers and condolences to the family. May you find peace at this time.
