Dorothy was married to Martin Fromm for 58 years.

Dorothy was passionate about her family and accomplished at bridge, knitting and needle pointing. In fact, many of her friends and family have clothes she knitted for them. She also enjoyed travelling the world with Martin. There were few countries that hadn’t been visited by the time they stopped travelling. Dorothy especially enjoyed being a hostess to her family and friends.
