Roebucky, was one of my first bosses at the Housing Authority in New Jersey. I always try to call her around her birthday. I guess I missed calling for the last 2 years because I didn't know she passed. She will always hold a "special" place in my heart. She treated me so well, actually spoiled me! I will always remember her kind and thoughtful ways. Rest in peace "special" lady! Love, your former employee, Gloria Koon-Clay PS-I know you are walking around Heaven with your pedometer!

I have known Dorothy a very long time since moving to Lakengren back in 1978......She was always a joy to be with.......I visited Dorothy often at the Nursing Home taking her memories of our times together, the book club she started and gave her the Christmas ornaments she gave us back then....also an angel to hang by her favorite bible reading which I framed and put up for her, and lastly took her the booklet she wrote and gave to me, plus a picture of us taken recently......I shall miss her cheerful smile and the music she loved which was always playing in her room at Vancrest.....Elsie Burkle.
