I was surprised and saddened to hear of Dorothy's passing. I should like to extend my sympathies to all her family members and friends.
I was surprised b/c one of my favorite Aunt's was Dorothy Bissinger, too.
She was Dorothy (Toomay) Bissinger and was married to Conrad. I stayed w/them by Pilot Rock when I was little.
I'm sorry I didn't get to know Dorothy Mae.
Sincerely Jock Kinne

Ron, Chanel and the whole family,
I am so sorry to hear about Dorothy. I have many memories of her from when I was part of the Bissinger family. I loved when we got to go to her house and play and it was so cool that there was a water fountain inside the house. And I always think about the beautiful cradle that she painted for me, her granddaughter. Dorothy was a great tole painter and so funny AND she loved her family so VERY much.
I know its a great loss to you all but I know that she has reunited with Gene and Janet, family was so much a part of Dorothy.
I love you all and your in my prayers.
Love Dawn
