Dorothy Mae (Kurpius) Kyllingstad joined her sister, Betty (Odden) and brother, Robert on Saturday, September 14, at 95 years of age after a 24-hour stay at Leesberg, Florida Regional Medical Hospital.
For the past few years her residence was with her brother, Terry, in Wildwood, Florida. “She always had my back and will be everlastingly missed,”said Terry. Dorothy (Dot) had been a resident of Staples for many years, caring for her mother, then became a resident of The Pines Assisted Living Center, before leaving to live in the sunshine.
There will be a viewing in Florida which will be followed by internment in the Staples Evergreen Cemetery near her husband of 66 years, Donald, who passed in 2011.
