She was born on December 2, 1923 in Escanaba, one of sixteen children born into the family of Thomas and Anna (Novosel) Krassick, who moved here from Yugoslavia. Dorothy had attended Wells grade school and Escanaba Jr. High School. She enlisted in the U.S. Army during WWII on February 29, 1944 and served until she was honorably discharged on November 13, 1944. Dorothy was a very hard worker and lived her life to the fullest.

Some of which include; Perfex Corp. in Kingsford; Norway Canning; Fly Factory of Escanaba; Freeman Furniture Factory; Bayview Glove Factory in Escanaba; Hoyer Ice Cream Factory in Escanaba; and Lapcor Plastics in Manitowoc, WI. Dorothy will be missed by those close to her, but her smile and laughter will remain with us.
