Dorothy Nash Hatch, born June 27, 1932 in Chicago, IL passed away Friday, December 22, 2017 after a brief illness. Mrs. Hatch was the daughter of Grover and Sonia Nash, who both predeceased her.

Dorothy married Douglas James Hatch in Chicago on December 20, 1953. She graduated from Northwestern University in 1955. She is survived by sons Bruce and Scott, and daughter-in-law, Susan (Bruce).

Dorothy lived in San Diego and Corpus Christi before settling in Houston following Douglas' retirement from the US Navy in 1955. The family moved from Houston to Dallas, followed by moves to San Francisco and Syracuse. Dorothy made lifelong friends at every stop. In 1982 they took the opportunity to return to the Dallas area to take over Grover Nash Sales, the family business, settling in Carrollton. She had a very successful business career with Grover Nash Sales, first in partnership with Douglas and later with daughter-in-law Susan.

Dorothy was an active member of the Church of the Holy Communion where she served on the Vestry, Altar Guild and Wedding Committee. She was a member of several bridge and supper clubs and was the first president of the North Dallas Woman's Club. She served as treasurer of the Country Place townhouse association for many years and enjoyed their home on the lake there and the 9-hole golf course. Her fun-loving personality, wit and charm will be greatly missed.
