If you knew Dorothy you knew how much she loved her dog Muffy, and she loved to send Christmas and Birthday cards. She never missed your Birthday, and you could count on her cooking and baking your favorite cake and food for your Birthday. She was the most loving and caring person you would ever meet, and always chose to see the good in everyone. She was the matriarch of our family, and she will be deeply missed by all who knew her.
For many years Allen and Dorothy owned and operated A&D Hitchcock Trucking Company out of Webberville, Michigan. Dorothy’s sharp mind for business earned her the opportunity to help operate the business part while Allen drove the truck and ran the logistics.
