Dorothy Ann Engel was born June 14, 1927 and peacefully departed this life on Feb 22, 2018. Her parents, Luther and Blanche Jones, preceded Dorothy in death. Her son Jay Engel (Kathy) and daughter Jennifer Broderick (Jim) survived her. Grandma or Nana is also survived by her six grandchildren: Jason Engel (Ivonne), Kristy Shepard (Brook), Jared Engel, Kate Chapman (Scott), Bethany Broderick (Jimmy) and Matt Broderick (Katie). Great grandchildren Jace Engel, Colin Engel, Peyton Engel, Ellie Chapman, Price Chapman, Fede Becerra, Blake Broderick and Gavin Broderick also survived Dorothy. Dorothy’s greatest love was her family, she was purely and unselfishly devoted to their wellbeing. She devoted most of her life to caring for her family, which she felt was her number one priority. Dorothy also enjoyed working with flowers, listening to music, reading and spending time with friends. Her lifetime accomplishments include 4H Club leader, Cub Scout den mother, Past General Chairman of Twig and many church leadership positions. Dorothy was affectionately known as Dot or Dottie by her many friends from Mifflin, Buckeye Lake, Little Turtle and Windemere communities. “Mom” was greatly loved and adored by Jay and Jenny. All of her grandchildren’s friends called her “Grandma Engel” or “Nana” with much love and affection. Her presence will be greatly missed but her spirit will live on in each of us forever. Our family wishes to extend thanks to the caregivers at Parkside and Danbury facilities and Capital City Hospice for her care and comfort. Our family will receive friends on Tuesday Feb 27 from 10am-12pm at MORELAND FUNERAL HOME 55 East Schrock Road, Westerville with a service immediately following. Pastor Will Hartfelder officiating. Burial to follow at Blendon Central Cemetery.
