Tribute to Dorothee Lillian Siepp Long

It is with a celebration of a life well lived, that we share the news of Dorothee Lillian Long’s passing on February 18, 2017. She lived a long, ┬áloved life, finally passing on at the age of 90. Old age runs in the Long family even through marriage.

Her Daughter Cindy Zemater shared this message about her Mother.

“The 3 Long brothers, Harold, Donald & Warren, all married very special talented women. My mother, Dorothee, was a talented artist and poet, besides having a long business career in various positions. Mom’s top priority was her family, which she was extremely devoted to. She was interested in learning about our genealogical roots. Glenn and I told her about the wonderful Long family reunion in 2015 that you planned.”

We wanted to share her obituary for anyone that would like to read more.
