Dorothy Helen (Clark) Denny, 79, Lake Nebagamon, died Monday, June 18, 2007, in St. Mary's Medical Center. She was born Aug. 22, 1927, in Milltown, Mont., to Eustace and Ida (Fields) Clark.

Dorothy moved to Iron River at a young age with her family and graduated from the Iron River School in 1946. She married John "Jack" Denny in 1950, who at that time was in the military. During her husband's 21 years of service she had the opportunity to travel with Jack and their three children. After they retired from the military, they built their home in Brule in 1968, where they could be close to both their families. Dorothy later moved to Lake Nebagamon in 2001.

Dorothy was a member of the Brule Presbyterian Church, the Brule Fire Bells, and was a 4-H leader in her earlier years. She worked at Twin Gables Restaurant and Motel before and after she was married. She loved to cook and bake, spending countless hours reading recipes.

Dorothy found people fascinating and had many wonderful friends. She had a quirky sense of humor and a great love for her family and friends.

She is survived by her son, Scott Denny, Wallkill, N.Y., and a daughter, Janis (William) Meller, Lake Nebagamon; 10 grandchildren, Tammy, John, Melissa, Corrina, Lauri, Renee, Andrea, Jackie, Pamela and Keith; several great-grandchildren; and a brother, Robert Clark.

Thanks to her many girl-friends in Brule over the years. Special thanks to her friends at the Phoenix Villa for checking on her. Special thanks to St. Mary's Home Hospice and the staff in the Hospice Care Unit for their great dedication and support for those in need and their families.

Dorothy will be missed greatly by all who knew her.

Visitation will be at 1 p.m. until the 2 p.m. memorial service Sunday in the Brule Presbyterian Church. Pastor Deborah Bartelt will officiate.

Dorothy was looking forward to "kicking up her heels" for her 80th birthday this August, so in honor of her, we will celebrate her life Sunday evening at the Kro-Bar in Brule.

Lenroot-Maetzold Funeral Home is assisting the family with arrangements.
