She was a long time member of the Presbyterian Church. Also, she retired from Teledyne Geotech in Garland, TX, where she assisted in making instruments that went off to the Apollo Moon Landing Mission. Later in her career, she was Manager of a woman’s clothing boutique in Dallas, as well as a Manager at a Fuller-Brush store.
Her greatest joy was being with her family and close friends. Both Dorothy and Harry enjoyed going dancing in their younger years and the casino’s and horse races in they’re later years.

Dorothy leaves behind a legacy of boldness, generosity, kindness, sincerity, compassion and most of all love. She was a beloved daughter, wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend.

It was such a nice pleasure to meet you, and what you had planned for my father just took my breath away. It was so special to hear you tell us how he would just come over to talk with you. I think it brought him much comfort. Tha you for putting that Air Force article of him on your website. I am going to have a replica made of the painting of his plane to give you. Thank you again for all you have done to honor our dad. Love, The Gillilands
