Dorothy’s Story

Site created on May 3, 2020

Dorothy had a stroke late in the evening on May 1, 2020. After a stay at Providence Medical Center in Everett and some time in a rehabilitation facility, she returned to her home on Orcas Island in November. Dorothy's family has set up this online space to share news about her status and health. We will provide updates as they come and you may write messages of encouragement for Dorothy.
