After high school, Dorrie continued her education at Susquehanna University in Pennsylvania and later at the University of Virginia where she earned a Masters Degree in Mathematics. She worked for many years for the Anser Corporation and later took a position with an affiliated company, Homeland Security Studies and Analysis Institute as a defense analyst.

She loved music and was a gifted pianist and flautist. In her spare time, she enjoyed making scrap books and shadow boxes for her family and friends. Most of all, she will be remembered as a kind person who was known for her style and grace. She was always willing to help anyone especially her family whom she loved deeply. Dorrie passed her love of learning on to her two stepchildren Stephen and Morgan by helping them with their homework and school projects.
