She loved to watch the birds outside her kitchen window and could sit and watch for hours.
She was predeceased by her husband of seventeen years, Robert Vickers Corson, a longtime companion James (Duke) Crowell and a son Randy Corson. Dorothy is survived by son Robert, and daughter Linda and her husband Michael Triano, two sisters Edna Corson and Audrey Traute, five grandchildren and one great-grandchild.
The family would like to thank Carroll Hospice, Carroll County, Maryland, for their efforts, care, and dedication.
