Dorathy was born near Hawley, PA, in the Pocono Mountains. She was the 10th of 11 children and was raised on a farm. She attended a one-room schoolhouse for her elementary education. After high school, she graduated from St Mary’s Nursing School in Scranton, PA, as an RN and moved to Cleveland when she married.
After raising her family, Dorathy worked at Suburban Community Hospital. She then transitioned to Hillcrest Hospital upon its opening until her retirement in 1987. She was an emergency room nurse and eventually promoted to hospital nursing supervisor.

Dorathy was a founding member of St. Paschal Baylon Church where she also volunteered in the school and as a Camp Fire Girl Leader. After her retirement, she volunteered with the Community Partners on Aging. She was a member of the Highland Heights 50 Plus Club.

She was a great cook and avid gardener. Dorathy had a passion for helping others and was very generous with herself and her time. She was loved by all. When anyone said “Love You” she always said “Love You More!”

To my Kump cousins: I googled the name Dorothy..”Gift of God, a vision”..So true! Aunt Dora is on my “top ten” list of strong woman who made a positive impact on my life. She could, and did, it all. Had a career, was a wife, mother, homemaker, “multi-tasker..all the while making it look effortless..Quite a gal!! Sorry I can’t be there, but please know you are in my thoughts and prayers. Love, Cousin Judy & Bill
