A memorial service will take place at 11 a.m. Wednesday, Oct. 31, at Stackus Funeral Home in Boyne City with a gathering of family and friends from 10 a.m. until the time of service. Pastor Jeff Ellis will be officiating. Cremation has taken place.
On Nov. 29, 1941, she married Stanley Jensen in Petoskey.
Dorothy is survived by her children, David (Lynn) Jensen of Saginaw, Minn., Larry Jensen of Walloon Lake and Nancy (Robert) Perry of Coloma, Mich. She had eight grandchildren, 23 great-grandchildren and 12 great-great-grandchildren.
She was preceded in death by her parents; brothers, Jay, Jim and Albert; and her husband, Stanley.
Dorothy wore many hats, from being a housekeeper, working in a creamery, being a school cook, an assembler for United Technologies and always being the best mother that anyone could ask for. She always put everyone first, and then she took whatever was left and still made it special.
She loved to sew, cross-stitch, read, play bingo, cook and share pictures and stories of her family to everyone and anyone.
