Dorothy was born to the late Katie and David Rockwell in McPherson, KS in the back of a car and passed on February 20, 2019, as she was born - in her own inimitable style. Dorothy was a kind, funny, unique woman and truly enjoyed the many friendships she built throughout her life. She was a devoted wife, mother, and grandmother and time spent with family was her favorite time. She loved reading, adventurous trips to unusual places and always staying active, working well into her 80’s, including volunteering at Elmhurst Hospital and the Lexington Square Resale Shop - investing herself fully into life every step. She was preceded in death by her sister, Dolores Arlow and is survived by her dear sister, Orva Gravenites; her brother-in-law, Eugene Kunkel; sister-in-law, Sharon Elliott, and a multitude of well loved nieces, nephews, and dear friends.
