1926 - 2017 Obituary Condolences
DOROTHY WORKMAN Dorothy Irene Workman left this world and joined her husband, Albert "Bud" Workman, Oct. 25, 2017. Dorothy was born in Brattleboro, Vt., Oct. 20, 1926. After many moves, her family, the Hemmerlys, settled in Greenville, Ohio. As a young woman she moved to Columbus, Ohio to attend Ohio State University. She met her husband, Bud, and settled in Newark, Ohio where she brought her four children into the world. The Workman Family left Ohio in 1970 and moved to Long Beach, Calif. where they lived until finally moving to Boulder City in 1993. Dorothy was a skilled seamstress and a part owner of the Quail's Nest Boutique in the Boulder Dam Hotel. She was an active member of the Benevolent Patriotic Order of DOES and a hospital and YWCA volunteer in her youth. Dorothy was a wonderful mother and grandmother. She loved her family with all her heart. Words cannot express the loss we feel but we are comforted knowing that she has been reunited with the love of her life, and our equally as wonderful father and grandfather. Her final words of wisdom to her family were to just love each other. We love you more Gigi. She left behind three daughters, Linda Hart of California, Susan Plaskey of Oregon, and Lisa Gibson-Workman of Nevada; and a son, Steven Workman of Arkansas. She was given six grandchildren (and a few more she considered grandchildren) and six great-grandchildren. She joined three brothers, one sister. She left her youngest sister, Maureen McCabe of Greenville, Ohio, to continue their legacy. A Memorial Mass will be at 11 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 4, at St. Andrews Catholic Church, 1399 San Felipe Drive, Boulder City, NV 89005. Family and friends can sign an online memorial guestbook at www.bouldercityfamilymortuary.com
