sweetheart, Frank Krebs Jr. They made their home in Gainesville for
several years, giving birth to three children. In October 1963, Dorothy
and Frank moved to the family farm located just west of the college,
quite an undertaking for a young family. Together, they worked hard,
managing to pay for their new place in a small amount of time. After all
the kids were in school, Dorothy went to work for Hesperian Savings as
teller and later as supervisor, spending 26 years there creating a loyal
customer base with her infectious smile and captivating wink.

After retirement, Dorothy enjoyed life helping Frank on the farm and
gardening. She loved canning produce from the garden. She was a very
good seamstress, patching many a pair of jeans for her family. Her
family was very important to her as she was blessed with 7 grandkids and
9 great-grandkids and loved them all dearly. Dorothy loved hosting
holiday family gatherings. Neighbors and members of their church were
just like family to her. She was devoted to her church, St. Mary’s, taking
communion to residents at the Renaissance on Sunday mornings the past
several years. Dorothy also loved to travel as her and Frank have seen
many places around the world with their brothers and sisters as well as
the great many friends on bus trips. Dorothy often served as the
unofficial travel agent for these trips, deciding which places to go to
next, booking flights, hotels, and other arrangements. Dorothy loved to
dance with Frank, 2-stepping and waltzing many a night away at
weddings, New Year’s Eve parties, and other events. She kept herself fit
exercising several days a week with her wonderful friends at Silver
Sneakers.

Dorothy peacefully passed from this life to be with her heavenly Father
with Frank and family members by her side on January 3, 2016.
