Dorothy was born on April 5, 1936, to Roy & Opal (Kingrey) Kennedy in Hastings, NE. She married LaVern Cline on March 15, 1953; to this union, nine children were born. Dorothy was a hard-working woman who took pride in everything she did. Her impeccable resume spoke for itself, especially when she was offered a high school custodial position at the age of 84.


Dorothy enjoyed spending time with her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. She enjoyed cooking/baking, but especially cooking for her daily lunch dates with Justin and Pat. Dorothy also enjoyed trying her luck with games of chance, cruising around in her red convertible Mustang, and patronizing any garage sale.


Dorothy was preceded in death by her husband; parents; 10 siblings; several in-laws; great-granddaughter, Kalyssa Stafford; granddaughter, Hollie Wilbur-Cline; sons-in-law, Donnie Zeckser and Cary Beurskens; and many other family and friends.
