Obituary for Dorothy Edna Morey

Dorothy Edna (Wackenhut) Morey, her gentle soul passed peacefully on March 17, 2013.

Born in Detroit on March 4, 1923, Dorothy grew up in Detroit and graduated from Redford High School where she was a Champion swimmer. She was a �Rosie the riveter� during WWII, and later a long time, devoted employee of the Farmington Post Office. She loved flowers, gardening and nature, and nothing was more important than her family and children. She was one of the most pure of heart and caring individuals you could be blessed to know and she will be dearly missed.

She is survived by her son, Edward (Valorie) Morey; her daughter, Doreen (Joe) Perry; granddaughters, Shannon (Greg) Vandergrift, Heather Atkins, and Stephanie Weeden; five great grandchildren; brother, George Wackenhut and a sister, Evelyn Kean.
She was preceded in death by a sister, Marilyn Trailor.

A Funeral Service will be held at Lynch & Sons Funeral Home, 404 E. Liberty St., Milford, on Wednesday, March 20, at 3PM. Visitation will be held from 1PM until the time of service. For further information please phone 248-684-6645.
