On February 21, 2021 at 9:53pm, Dorothy (Dottie) Grande (Summer) took her last breath and gained her angel wings. Her last 2 days were spent surrounded by those she loved most in the world, her children, her grandchildren, great grandchildren and her sister. Dottie embodied the word "selfless", the needs of her loved ones came first before her own in the most literal sense. There was never a time in her life that she did not worry more for her family then she did for herself. Even in her final hours, Dotties' thoughts turned to her sister Cookie.
Dottie is predeceased by her husband Thomas Grande, her parents, Francis and Dorothy Sumner, her brothers, Arthur, Francis, Dennis and Joseph Sumner. She leaves behind her 4 children, Denise Murphy and her husband Kenneth, Patricia Manitta and her husband Michael, Joellen Hoch and her husband Cary, and her son Thomas Grande and his wife Gina, her 12 Grandchildren, Jeanine, Denise, Kevin and Andrew Murphy, Michael, Joseph and Lisa Manitta, Brianna and Matthew Hoch and John, Marissa and James Grande as well as her 2 Great Grandchildren Makayla and Brenna Randolph.
