Fondly........The Mock Family

   Dottie and her family lived in Independence, Kansas; and to the end, she remained a private person, requesting that news of her continuing struggle with cancer not be placed on the class web page. Dorothy wrote 10 published books and over 200 published articles (the first published when she was a mere sixteen years old,) short stories, poems, etc, on a variety of subjects for all age groups. She and her husband raised five children.
