Three children were born to this union, Linda, Barbara and Donna, seven grandchildren, 13 great grandchildren, two great-great-grandchildren.

Dorothy and her husband lived in Maple Lake, and she worked for Stearns Sewing Factory and also as head cook in a restaurant. Dorothy went back to school and earned a GED. Later she went back to school and learned how to be a nurse’s assistant. Florian and Dorothy’s youngest daughter Donna moved to Grants Pass, Oregon and shortly thereafter Dorothy and her husband moved to Cave Junction, Oregon and she worked at a nursing home and also home care.
