She served in leadership roles, often rising to the role of President, in a number of organizations including The Women’s City Club, Trinity Hospital Women’s Auxiliary, Scandinavian Club Auxiliary (now Scandinavian Women’s Society), Stephens College Alumnae Association, Daughters of the American Revolution, and both the Fireside and Vanderslice committees of the Kansas City Art Institute.

She was a 55 year member of First Lutheran Church and over the past 5 years was a dedicated volunteer at Blessings Abound Thrift Store. Dorothy hosted the House of Santa Mouse Christmas Boutique for the last 41 years, crafting beautifully handmade felt mice dressed for any occasion; a hobby that brought great joy to many.
