Goodbye Our Loving Matriarch

Dorothy May Pearce, known to me as Banka Dottie or Nana

August 3, 1925 – July 3, 2012

Our Loving Matriarch,

We will do our best to be strong and hold together as a family without you.


 Thank you for teaching me

to laugh during difficulty,

the importance of an education and good manners,

to appreciate the arts in its various forms,

and for goodness sake….to enjoy life!

Our memories of you will rest comfortably in our hearts.
