Dorothy C. Woerner, age 88 formerly of Trumbull, beloved wife of the late Edmund A. Woerner, passed away peacefully on Monday, June 22, 2020 at Bishop Wicke Health Care Center. Born on September 1, 1931 in Detroit, MI, she was the eldest daughter of the late Charles and Florence Schmidt Cummings.

Dorothy enjoyed singing in the Nichols United Methodist church choir, various charitable activities, spending time with her children, breakfast picnics down at the lake, traveling, reading books, sewing, and socializing with their many friends who knew her as Dolly. She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, friend and constant care giver who will be truly missed by all who knew her.
