Dorothy Depuy

July 4, 1929 — December 7, 2017

Dorothy Depuy, 88 years old, of Essex, NY joined her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ on December 7, 2017 at Elizabethtown Community Hospital surrounded by her loving family. Dorothy was born on July 4, 1929 to Fred and Julia Worden, the third of seven children.
She married Raymond Depuy on November 9, 1947 and together they had three children: Jansen, Diane, and Donna. Dorothy was a great lover of flowers. Throughout her life she spent many hours (and dollars) on plants from various nurseries and enjoyed watching them bloom indoors and out. She had a special love for Roses and African Violets. She also enjoyed word search puzzles, reading romance novels and playing nightly games of SkipBo, Phase Ten and Yahtzee with her daughter, Donna.
Left to keep her memory alive are Dorothy’s daughters, Diane Weiss (Bob) and Donna Haynes (Milton), her granddaughters, Tina LaSalle (Jess) and Angel Forbes (Marc), and great grandchildren, Katelynn and Jansen Haynes. She was predeceased by her parents, her husband, her son, and siblings George, Harry, Walter, Susie, Ora, and Ernest.
The family would like to thank Dr. Rob DeMuro for his infinite patience and understanding during Dorothy’s office visits and Elizabethtown Community Hospital Nursing staff for their care and support.
