Dottie was a vibrant, artistic, creative woman. Her creative outlets included painting in water-colors, sewing and clothing design, pottery, and knitting. She was active in Cub Scouts for 10 years and Girl Scouts for 12 years. Camping and canoe trips were memorable experiences with family and Girl Scouts. Dottie volunteered at Children’s Hospital in Columbus for over 20 years, where her diminished sense of smell enabled her to serve in the burn unit.
Dottie and A.C. hosted foreign-exchange students at Ohio State University for many years. Long-term relationships were formed during these exchanges. They traveled widely: Europe, the Holy Land, the Orient, and Africa.
In 1975, they retired to Fountain Hills, Arizona, and joined Fountain Hills Community Church (United Brethren in Christ). They felt God’s call to be missionaries in Freetown, Sierra Leone, where their international experience was an asset. From 1979 to 1982, Clint served as business manager and Dottie served as hostess for up-country missionaries and UBC staff. It was such a meaningful experience they returned for six months in 1983. They continued their service by serving on denominational committees and on the board of Huntington College. They also traveled to speak at churches and conference sessions about their mission experience.
Dottie and Clint spent many rewarding years in Arizona. After Clint passed, Dottie eventually moved to Indiana where she spent her final years.
