She was born on August 17, 1938 in Norristown, PA. She was the daughter of the late William and Dorothy Hevener.

Dottie was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister and friend. She adored her children and grandchildren. She was very active and loved her garden, bird watching, photography and kayaking. She was an amazing cook, having a well-balanced meal on the table every night no matter how the day went. She made an awesome apple pie. She loved shopping, so much that QVC and UPS stock might go down now. She could often be found outside splitting and stacking wood with Joe. Dottie was a member of the YWCA and the Friends of the Chemung River.

Dottie grew up in Elmira and graduated from Elmira Free Academy. In her early twenties, she was a stewardess for Eastern Airlines. When she came back to Elmira, she was a long-time employee of Rose, Kimball and Baxter. Other employers include Brewer Pools and Kimble Plumbing.
