Dorsie was a Christian and attended the Sunrise Community Church faithfully. She loved nature and enjoyed camping, fishing, the lake, boats or just walking outdoors enjoying the beauty surrounding her and the sunshine beating down on her. If she caught a really large fish, she would get all excited and would want someone to help her reel it in. She will always be remembered for her beautiful smile, always being in a good mood and happy go lucky. She loved when she could make those around her smile and feel happy. Her greatest accomplishments were being a wonderful loving wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother and Aunt to her family. She treasured the time that she had with all of her family and especially enjoyed her granddaughter, Ariel Bosley, in teaching her to prepare meals for the family she loved so dearly. She was well known for her fabulous Thanksgiving spread that she would prepare for all of those she loved.
