Dorothy was recently working with the residents of the Heritage Apartments and was a personal caregiver to a few area residents until her death. Out of all the things in her life that meant the most was her family, especially her only grandchild Landon Copley, born in 2001, which she just couldn’t get enough of. Dorothy enjoyed her cats, visiting the neighbors, taking care of the elderly and spoiling Landon. She is survived by her loving husband Roland, devoted sons; Shane (Darci) Copley, adoring grandson Landon Copley Wilmot, SD and Lance Copley, Redfield, SD, four brothers, and two sisters, four sisters-in-law and multiple nieces, nephews and cousins.
