Dorothy L. Craft, died peacefully in the late afternoon hours of April 5, 2021, at Franklin County Rehab Center in St. Albans, VT.


Dorothy was born in Dundee, MI on November 17, 1925.  She was the daughter of Harold and Belle (Wright) Waterstradt.  She was married to Lovell Craft on April 3, 1948. They lived in Allen Park, MI, Poughkeepsie, NY, and Williston, Bennington and St. Albans, VT. Dorothy and Lovell developed lifelong friendships wherever they lived or traveled.


Lovell passed shortly after Dorothy, on May 9, 2021.  She leaves behind a daughter Debbie (Chuck) Farrington and grandchildren: Meghan (St. Albans) and Charlie (Eugene, OR).
