While attending the pageant, she was able to see the 32nd President of the United States, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, when he came to Salt Lake City. He waved to her from his wheelchair on the back platform of a steam engine train.

Dorothy was an excellent cook, talented artist, hardworking homemaker, loving wife, devoted mother and grandmother, a wonderful neighbor and friend to all.
