Grothe, Dorothy A., on Sunday, June 18, 2017 at the age of 100.

Born Dorothy Gruenert on 9 May 1917 to Walter Gruenert and Ida Lenz in St. Louis. Beloved wife of Raymond E.

Dorothy was an avid Cardinals fan who devoted her entire life to her family. She loved to cook, fish and play a variety of games such as Scrabble, Yahtze and Michigan Rummy. Some of her most enduring traits were the consistent love, kindness, caring and generosity she showed not only to her family but to others. Her positive and loving attitude throughout her entire life were an inspiration to everyone and taught all of us how we can age with grace and dignity.
