Our deepest sympathy to the Yagodich and Zippay families. Dorothy has been a great asset to the Conservation District. Her articles and devotion to the District will be greatly missed. To this day we know that she would have come to every meeting if she was able. Her infectious smile always was special to all of us.

Gone from our sight, But not from our hearts.
