From the moment I met her, Dotty Nye made me feel like I was part of the family. She always had a wonderful smile, genuine empathy, interest in others, love of family, and care of community. I know she will be dearly missed and fondly remembered by many.

Susan and family: What a great lady. Many fond memories if playing with daughter, Susan, as they lived down the farm lane from my grandparents and we had many fun times playing in in the front lawn, playing the old piano, sharing lunches etc. She will be missed. She was a shining example of her love for the Lord and caring spirit.
