Dorothy M. Thomas

February 5, 1925 — May 4, 2012

Dorothy Marie Thomas, 87, of Plymouth passed away Friday, May 4th, 2012 in Danville, Indiana. She was born February 5, 1925 in Plymouth, Indiana, the daughter of Alton and Rose (Halt) Carothers.

Dorothy graduated from Lapaz High School with the class of 1942. She lived nearly all of her life in the Plymouth area with the exception of the past 4 years, when she and Robert lived in the Danville, IN area with their daughter Patricia.

She was a member of the Helpful Hour Friendship Club.

Dorothy worked for a short while as a bank clerk in South Bend, but soon chose the life of a farm wife and mother as her career.

She and Robert spent several years of their retirement travelling the U.S. and making friends wherever they visited. She enjoyed gardening, crafts, sewing, puzzles, reading, and dancing. Each spring was eagerly anticipated with hunting mushrooms on her parent’s farm. Her greatest joy was watching her family members build great lives for themselves and become good citizens.

Family members and friends will greatly miss Dorothy’s loving and sincere personality.

Dorothy is survived by her husband of 67 years, Robert S. Thomas, her daughter, Patricia (Terry) Plank, Danville, IN, and her son, James (Lou Ann) Thomas of Plymouth. She also is survived by three grandsons, Sean Thomas, Wheaton, IL, Jason Thomas, Lisle, IL and Matthew Thomas of Cincinnati, OH. A sister, Betty Wade also resides in Plymouth.

She was preceded in death by her parents and one brother, Harold Carothers.

Visitation will be held in the Johnson-Danielson Funeral Home, 1100 N. Michigan St. Plymouth on Tuesday, May 8th from 4 – 8 p.m. Services will be held in the funeral home on Wednesday, May 9th at 10 a.m. with Peter Redmon officiating. Burial will follow in the Oakhill Cemetery, Plymouth.

Memorial gifts may be made to the Marshall County Historical Society, 123 N. Michigan St., Plymouth, IN 46563.
