Notes:  The following information was supplied by Dorothy's niece Vera:
Once when the family gathered at a beach for some summer fun, Dorothy's niece Vera, then a toddler, wondered off and into the water alone.  Dorothy noticed Vera was missing, spotted her long hair in the water, jumped into action, grabbed Vera by her long hair, and pulled her out to safety.

Dorothy took several foster children into her home and loved them all as her own.  She expected all family members to treat her foster children as family too.  Dorothy was fun to be with and enjoyed telling stories about all her children, biological and foster.  She was an avid reader.

Dorothy cared for her very ill father (Joseph Nickels) and never complained except when he took his teeth out for her to clean.  He died in 1959.
Maurice & Dorothy Cooper The photo at the left shows Dorothy with her husband Maurice in 1993 — Dorothy & Edna Nickels shortly before his death.

Dorothy canned in the fall and made the best pickles ever.  Vera has Dorothy's recipe.

The photo at the right shows Dorothy with Edna Morgan Nickels, circa 2010.
Dorothy passed on at age 90 and was survived by her children.
