To me, she was "Aunt Dorothy" in the Potluck Club, as all members were honorary aunts and uncles - except the ones who actually were! When she became the Home Ec teacher at Lawton, I had trouble not calling her Aunt. She was very creative with the class of both girls and boys - sewing, cooking - and the guys were pretty good!

So So many memories with our large Mohney family...her youngest Son Duane Ott and I were one month apart and spent good times as children, teens, and young adults together. Many trips to Holland State Park camping,,,Mohney get togethers were frequent at the Farm and Grandpa Mohney's Lake cottage on Cedar lake. I also had " Aunt Dorothy " for Home Ec I was told a little too often to sit down and listen Miss She taught me ( out of the classroom ) how to make Homemade Doughnuts and cakes . Very talented and patient person. When Fred and I became Husband and wife she made a beautiful white eyelet dress for my Wedding and brought over many beautiful Floral arrangements. She was awlays there to help people if she could. Aunt Dor you are very missed and will forever be in my heart and memories. RIP dear lady.

Dorothy was one of the loveliest people I’ve ever known. I met her at the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts in the late 80’s. She was the kindest, sweetest person and always so supportive of my pottery. Bless her heart. She was a gem. What an honor to have known her.
