Dorothy Elizabeth Abbe of Sodus passed away peacefully on Sunday, Dec. 1 at the divine age of 105 at Blossom View Nursing Home in Sodus.
A graveside service will be held in spring 2014 where she will be buried with her husband Stan in Huron Evergreen Cemetery, Huron.
Dorothy (Dot) was born on her parents' farm Jan. 6, 1908 in Heron to the late Floyd and Elizabeth Meeker. That same year Teddy Roosevelt was President and the Ford Model T was introduced!
Beloved mother-in-law to Robert Scheerschmidt, grandmother to Gene and Larry Scheerschmidt, their wives Candyce and Shelley and great-grandmother to Abbe, Gena, Tyler and Lexi Scheerschmidt of Northern Virginia.
Dot lived her entire life in the Sodus area where she met her husband of 60 years, Stanley Abbe. She was most proud of her family and the many people she cared for throughout her life. Dot is rejoicing as she’s with her beloved daughter Joyce Elizabeth Scheerschmidt and all her family and friends that have gone before her.
We are all better off having had Dorothy Abbe in our lives.
