Dorothy was very close to all of her family all of her 93 years. Dorothy loved all kids and that love was returned. She helped raise many and continued doing so right up to her illness which was diagnosed in September. The family moved from New Mexico to Arlington,Texas in the late sixties where she worked at Hickory Farms. Mostly she kept her grandchildren and great grandchildren. She loved to dance and was still dancing 3 times a week right up to when she became ill. She had many nieces and nephews and she loved them all. Kids of all ages were drawn to her and she gave each one her love. She answered to Mom, Gram, Aunt Dot, Auntie. She loved to cook and made the best tortillas, enchiladas, beans and green chile, all with a New Mexico flair. She will be missed by all of her family, her many neighbors, and all of her Senior Center family. "Godspeed", Dorothy Marie Lopez. She loved to travel and went to Hawaii, Mexico, on cruises and loved visiting family in Arizona, California, Utah, and New Mexico. She was Catholic and had a personal relationship with Christ.
