She was born March 6, 1938 in Romulus, MI to the late Howard Kenneth and Dorothy Elizabeth Provey.
Dorothy was a kind hearted determined woman; loving mother and grandmother who spoiled her grandchildren & great-grandchildren. She was sweet with an extra side of spunk. She was an awesome cook, loved dancing, gardening & the outdoors, as well as traveling, and watching sunsets.

Being with her children and grandchildren were the highlight of her day.
