Dorothy L. Thiery

Dorothy L. Thiery

February 21, 1922 to February 3, 2015

‘Dot’, as she was known to her friends, was born in Milwaukee, WI and was one of 7 children. She married her husband Lowell in 1946. They shared 46 memorable years together, moving to Bellevue in 1963.

Reading was her first love which she taught her 3 daughters, grandchildren and great-grandchildren to enjoy while nestled in her lap. In later years, she lived vicariously through her books by reading one a day.

Music was her second love and always filled her home. She watched all the music shows on TV, and kept a scorecard to vote for her favorites on Dancing with The Stars.

Dorothy earned a degree from Bellevue Community College in her 50’s and was an avid swimmer at Samena Club into her late 80’s. She loved to dance, play piano, trap shoot, fish, garden, bake, joke, and play games. Her favorite thing was spending time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She enjoyed being told that she wasn’t a ‘typical’ 92 year old and was very young at heart.

Lochmoor was Dorothy’s home for 50 years where she loved waking up every morning to enjoy the spectacular view and ‘her’ Mt. Rainier. She will be sorely missed and lovingly remembered by all her family, friends and wonderful neighbors.

In memoriam, donations may be made to The American Cancer Society.
