There are not words that can adequately express the love, goodness and lifting influence that we have all experienced from Dorothy and Harv. A hug from Dorothy always made you feel special and appreciated. Their love for each other is a shining light that leads to eternal joy. May we never forget how to love and serve others as Dorothy so well exemplified. We love you Dorothy and Harv.
From day one of meeting Dorothy, she accepted me and my kids and continued to do so throughout the years. She is the most amazing woman with the kindest soul. The things she did for everyone around her just put me in awe. I looked up to her, to this very day! The stories she told me, the memories that she shared with us and her amazing smile and personality will always be remembered. We will miss her dearly, such a huge loss but what a legacy she has left behind to follow and look up to. Love you!!
I love you GRANNY!! You are my second mom, my greatest friend, my hero, my only grandmother I have had on this earth! You are the sweetest, kindest, most hard-working, loving, good, spiritual, fun, smart, awesome person I have ever known. You remember everyone's birthday, 38 grandchildren and 80 great-grandchildrens birthdays!(#might be off, ever growing). You make everyone feel like the favorite and loved each of us the way we were/are. You made me personally and all my girls and step-kiddos feel loved constantly! I will miss our early morning, 4:30 a.m. talks. I will miss you words, hugs, kisses and the way you served others. It has been a complete honor to see you help others until your dying day. And I know you will continue to up in heaven, watching over all of us. I could go on forever!! Thank you with all my heart for who you are and for your faith, and for your amazing legacy. We will talk about you daily! We will see you again one day! I am grateful forever for you! We all love you endlessly! Love, your Natalie dear heart!
I worked at Kami Hair/Salon Lamont in Holladay. Over the years I got to know Dorothy and eventually had the pleasure of doing her hair frequently. We shared many laughs, and she always gave great advice. I looked up to her in so many ways. One of my favorite memories was her coming to my wedding. She gave me a crockpot, and was always so happy to hear about what I had made that week in it. She was an incredible human being and I will truly miss her!
I had the privilege of working in a Relief Society presidency with Dorothy for a short time. The lesson I learned from Dorothy was her attitude about “work”.She deemed work as a priceless privilege. She felt blessed that she had the opportunity and blessing to help others. I knew she got great peace through service. I loved that about her. She was an angel of a person.
Our dear dear Dorothy....oh how you will be missed. We can honestly say that you and Harv have been our hero's the last 25 years. We both want to follow in every footstep you've taken in life. We will always remember you sharing experiences of the many wonderful dinners of you had for your grandchildren and how much you loved having them over. You've been a great example of love and service to so many of us and we will never forget it. Personally, I remember having a serious foot surgery and was laid up for months recovering. Here you came with a meal all the way up our long and steep stairs at the age of 89!!! I will always cherish the sweet friendship that we shared and try to emulate you in every way I possibly can. Thank you for everything...until we meet again! Much love and gratitude, Dan and Jan England
Granny! Where to begin...you have a gift of love that was welcoming and inclusive. You exemplified service...constantly giving of yourself. You loved gathering our family and continued to until you were nearly 90....you are extraordinary!! You remembered every birthday....and where you could, would drive to deliver a birthday card on the day of each great grandchild’s birthday. You have left a remarkable legacy. I love you, so much!! Thank you, for everything!!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️
Dear Dorothy, I love you so much! I have enjoyed our many luncheons the past 29 years.(5 times a year.) You moved into the Brighton 8th ward about two years after I did. You were put in as Relief Society president soon after and called Sandra Earl, Ann Burt and I to be in your presidency. (Ann moved and Gaylia Huntsman was called as Homemaking Counselor.) I can safely say that we all looked up to you in every way. Besides being an extremely capable president leading with love and compassion, you were a font of knowledge from living a life well lived. You always gave such good, sound advice. I remember you and Harv being our home teachers.(you came as his companion) My kids adored the two of you! One time you guys brought my son David a picture of the San Diego temple to hang in his room. You were psychic, because 10 years later he was called to southern California on his mission! I will miss you deeply my fun, wise friend.❤❤❤
Grandma, you were the most compassionate, loving and caring soul on this earth. You always made sure that everyone was together. We will miss you. Forever you have my heart. If flowers grow in heaven Lord, then pick a bunch for me then place them in my grandmas arms and tell her they’re from me. Tell her that I love and miss her and when she turns to smile, place a kiss on her cheek and hold her for awhile. I love you Grandma!
I was blessed to serve with Elder and Sister Jerman in the greatest mission on earth, Michigan Lansing Mission 🙂 They were the sweetest couple ever with an ever ready smile and hug from Sister Jerman, genuinely caring about how I was doing every time we met or spoke on the phone. A very special experience I had with her was when she had to relate to me a message from my Father, as she had received the phone call from Fiji, that my Grandpa had passed away. She expressed her love and listened to me cry like a baby over the phone, she cried with me. A few days later we had Zone Conference and as I got out of the car with my companion, Sister Jerman ran to me, gave me a big hug and we had another crying party! She lifted my burden of missing home and missing my family. At that moment, it was as if I was hugging my Mum or my Dad and I felt comforted. I will never forget your beautiful smile of reassurance that things will get better... Along with Elder Jerman's clear and concise counsel, 'driving is a full time job'. I can still hear his voice when I grab something to eat while driving lol I love you both Elder and Sister Jerman and I am grateful I got to meet you both at the last Mission reunion I attended. May your beautiful souls rest in Love and Peace and I look forward to my hug when I get there someday. Eternally Grateful, Sister Rabuka ❤️ My Love and Prayers are with the members of Sister Jerman's Family! Thank you for sharing your sweet Grandmother and Mother with me ❤️
Granny was and is the epitome of selfless, genuine kindness! One who quietly suffered many physical pains for years while focusing all her energy, emotion and love outward on those around her! Although she will be missed dearly, we will see her again and I know she is without pain and with loved ones around her. We love you Granny

I sure will miss you Grandma! There is so many amazing things about you that I admired and loved about you. You and grandpa were the rock of this entire family keeping us close and doing so many activities and memorable trips as kids. You had such a big heat and a lot of love to give everyone and that will be something everyone will remember. I love you ❤️
Mom, You were the essence of a wonderful mother. You poured your whole heart and self into loving and nurturing your children, children's spouses, grandchildren, great grandchildren and ALL of those around you. You showed us how to serve with unconditional love to the very end. Your courage and tenacity will always be a beacon in my life. Thank you for your love of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and showing us how to live it to the fullest. I love you so much Mom! Love eternally, Nettie
