Age 91, passed away peacefully
Wednesday, October 10, 2018.
Dorothy was the beloved wife
of the late Joseph Oxenreiter;
daughter of the late John and
Alice Ropar; sister of John
(Shirley) Ropar, Florence (Robert)
Steinbeck, the late Marcella
VanPraag, Alice, Charles, Lillian
and Dennis; cousin of Carol A.
Ganser; as well as numerous
nieces, nephews, and other
friends and extended family.
Dorothy was a natural caregiver
and raised her younger siblings
after the death of her mother.
She met her beloved Joe, who
lovingly courted her for twenty
two years. They married in
1973 and settled down in
Mount Lebanon. She had a
natural love of animals especially
her Maltese, Courtney. Dorothy
was a proud Pittsburgh sports
fan and often watched the
Steelers and Pirates play; she
also had an avid interest in
golfing. Dorothy enjoyed being
outside in the warm months.
She spent much of her time in
the garden tending to flowers.
Dorothy had a smile that lit up
a room and a heart with
enough love to make sure
everyone that knew her felt
loved and appreciated.
Dorothy will live on in the
hearts of those she loved and
will be greatly missed. In lieu
of flowers, the family requests
donations be made to Family
Hospice and Palliative Care
