Dorinda worked with my mom, Betty Watts, at St. Joseph Hospital in Wichita back in the 1970's. I have always had great memories of Dorinda. I remember mom bringing home vegetables from out of their huge garden and mom and me would start canning them. Dorinda and mom made my wedding cake in 1976. It was beautiful covered with yellow roses. That big old house still sits down on South Broadway. Whenever I drive by it brings back many wonderful memories! I'm so sorry for your loss,Mary Kuttler (Watts)
Dorinda was a major part of my life since Brenda and I went to high school together. She was a brilliant baker, candy maker and supporter. I will always have wonderful memories of my times with her. I am just sad that I didn't get a lesson on how to make her candy!
My Aunt Dorinda was truly a remarkable woman. My prayers are for those grieving to be comforted knowing she is free of earthly pain.
Thoughts and prayers are with you!
In our thoughts and prayers,Phyllis, Alan, Paige, & Andrew Vickery
