Dorothy was born in Piru, Calif., on January 18, 1935, to Jesse and Myrtle Baker. Dorothy attended Piru school and later graduated from Fillmore High School in 1952. Most people would remember Dorothy from her 20-plus years working as a checker at Vons in Fillmore. She loved her family and would spend most of her time with them. She enjoyed traveling with her late husband, Spike. She also spent a lot of her time reading, taking pictures, working on her computer, and researching her family history. After her husband passed away, she would spend Friday nights with her girlfriends going to dinner and watching movies. Dorothy loved listening to music and had a very eclectic taste, from Oldies to Opera. She was a wonderful mother, grandmother and friend.
