Dorothy was my husband’s Cousin and we remember both her and Frank as very kind people. We spent many family gatherings at their house and they were both very welcoming. We remember the years that Dorothy spent at Kohl's Department Store and visited her a few times when she worked at Southridge. Dorothy was our Son's (Christopher) Godmother back in 1967 and we have some photos of that day. Her husband (Frank) was a very talented carpenter and he built us a darkroom in our basement when we lived in New Berlin back in the 70's & 80's. They took the time to visit Adolph Janoske (my husband’s Father) back in the late 90's when he was in a nursing home and they even took him out for a ride now and then plus gave us a hand in cleaning out his house when Adolph passed away in 1999.They were the parents of 3 very nice children and we send our condolences to them and the entire family. Dorothy was a very classy lady and we have many good memories of her, Frank. and the entire family. RIP Cousin Dorothy.

Of all my aunts and uncles, Aunt Dorothy was my favorite. It helps that she was the youngest sibling of my father, so I got to know her for a much longer time than my other aunts and uncles. It also helped that she lived in Milwaukee--close enough to visit Medford when I was a kid--and almost next door when I was an intern teacher in West Bend in 1975 and when I began teaching in Hartland in 1976. Aunt Dorothy and Uncle Frank were married in the same year that I was born. In this picture, she is holding me at my grandfather's farm on her wedding day. I was only 4½ months old. When I lived in West Bend from January through August 1975, Aunt Dorothy would invite me down to have Sunday dinner. I loved her pork roast! Then I was an English language teaching assistant in France from September 1975 through May 1976. Guess who took the time to bake cranberry-nut bread and ship it via airmail to me for that Christmas? Yes, Aunt Dorothy! When I was hired to teach in Hartland in July 1976, I stayed with Dorothy and Frank. I found an apartment but needed to furnish it. What did I know about buying furniture? Nothing! But Aunt Dorothy came to the rescue! She shopped with me and helped me pick out everything--my bedroom furniture, mattress, sofa, swivel rocker, and kitchen table/chairs. What a saint! I got together with Aunt Dorothy, Uncle Frank, and my cousins occasionally while teaching in Hartland. Always so welcoming! I remember the time when I was having the French Club make French bûche de Noël yule log cake and the sponge cake didn't turn out just right. I called her up and asked her for her recipe. The next year I used that one and we had success. She also helped me with her cream puff recipe. When my mother had Alzheimer's disease, Aunt Dorothy was a great listener and so supportive. A great prayer warrior, too, when I needed it most. In more recent years, my cousins Doreen and Janice brought Aunt Dorothy to visit me in Hartland every year and we'd enjoy going out to a different area restaurant each time. What fun! On her 90th birthday in 2019, the family invited Tom and me to help them celebrate the special occasion at a Pewaukee restaurant. This is the last time that I got to see her in person (due to the pandemic in 2020). A lot of good memories indeed! Unfortunately, Covid has struck another individual and now it happens to be my favorite aunt. This isn't the way it is supposed to be. This isn't the way a life is supposed to end. But a peaceful, better life awaits my aunt in heaven!

Love you Mom. When I was 19, you opened your home to me. I loved it so much, I had to become part of the family. Thank you and say hi to Dad.
