Dorothy Miriam (Sutton) Brumfiel, 86, Sharpsville went to be with her Lord Jesus at 5:25 p.m. Monday, Dec. 3, 2012, in the home of her daughter Nancy. Three of her four children, were with her as she went to Heaven.

On April 6, 1946, Dorothy married Willis “Bill” Arthur Brumfiel in East Providence, R.I., and he preceded her in death on his 61st birthday, May 10, 1982.

Dorothy was the oldest of 11 children. She graduated in 1944 from East Providence High School, East Providence, R.I. Dorothy worked in Rhode Island at a family owned candy business, as a soda jerk in a local restaurant, at Browne and Sharpe Mfg. Co., and Mason Can Co., where she met her husband. After they married they moved to Kokomo where Bill’s family lived. After the death of their 5-year-old son, Michael, Dorothy and Bill moved to Sharpsville.

She was a long-standing member of Heartland Church, Sharpsville, for over 31 years, and loved the Lord with all her heart. The only way her children could get her to move back to Indiana in 2005 was to promise to take her to church every Sunday. Dorothy was able to fulfill one of her legacy wishes by presenting a personal Bible to each of her grandchildren.

She tap danced while growing up, loved to bowl, line-dance, and swim. She also enjoyed playing cribbage, but her favorite things in later years were circling word puzzles, attending her favorite church activity 56ers, and playing Skipbo with her children and grandchildren.
