She will be greatly missed by her two daughters, Madge M. Arrington and Mary J. Arrington; one son, Michael E. Arrington; four nieces, Carol Treolo and Wanda White, who were raised with Dorothy, Shirley Barker and Elisa Noble who were in contact with Dorothy daily; a host of nieces, nephews, great-nieces and nephews who loved her very much; extended family at Princeton Health Care Center who loved and cared for her; and the wonderful ministers who visited her at Princeton Health Care and the hospital to pray with her.

At Dorothy's request her body has been cremated and there will be no services at this time.  Memorial contributions may be made to Princeton Health Care Center Rockers Recreation Fund, 315 Courthouse Rd., Princeton, WV 24740.
