The daughter of the late Harold I. and Isabele Kelder Fuller, she was born on August 20, 1919 in the Washington Heights area of Middletown. This is where she started her family and one of the first Auto Body repair businesses in Middletown. She lived most of her life as a devoted mother raising her six children. Her family was the central focus and force of her life here on earth.
She was a member of North Congregational Church in Middletown. After her family was raised, she worked for St. Teresa’s Nursing Home and then Lloyd’s Shopping Center. She retired and settled into the enjoyment of her grand and great grandchildren.
Dorothy was a small petite woman in the GRAND picture of the world but lived a FULL life. She lived, worked and saw first hand many of the changes and development of the world, Orange County and Middletown area. A bit of the history of this area was lost on Friday. Her greatest contribution is her children! Her family will miss her dearly.
