Dorothy Florence Sylvester passed away January 16, 2020, surrounded by her daughters at the Grace Pointe Crossing, Cambridge MN where she had resided for the last 16 years. Formerly she presided in Bethel MN where she devoted her life to her family, home and faith.
Dorothy married Robert (Bob) Sylvester on August 30, 1952. Bob and Dorothy were married nearly 52 years and raised 6 caring daughters. Dorothy loved to play the piano, dance, garden and her cats. She was a strong woman and tried not to show the pain and heartache as the rheumatoid arthritis crippled her body and took away her ability to do the things she loved. Mom is now free to play and dance forever.
Dorothy is preceded in death by her beloved husband Bob, mother; Florence, father; Paul, sisters; Janet, Wanda, Angie, Jenny and brother Eddie. Her legacy is survived by her 6 daughters, Cherie Nelson, Debbie Darsie, Sue (Gary) Points, Vikki (Phil) Olsen, Sandy (Brook) Benes, Jackie (Doug) Johnson, 13 grandchildren, 7 great grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews.
