Dorothy was born in Chester, WV on June 9th, 1929 to the late Lester and Edith Wehner. Dorothy grew up in the Ohio Valley and lived here her entire life. She attended Chester High School and graduated with the class of 1948. On May 2nd, 1952, Dorothy married Robert Proctor, and the two spent just over 60 years together until Robert’s passing on June 30th, 2012.
Dorothy worked as an insurance agent for AAA. When she wasn’t working, Dorothy enjoyed quilting. She also enjoyed golfing, but was mostly a huge fan of Ohio State University football and anything that had to do with Pittsburgh sports. She was also a member of the TOPS club, which is a non-profit organization dedicated to health and weight loss. What Dorothy loved most of all, was spending time with her family. She had several grandchildren and great-grandchildren, all of whom she loved dearly.
In addition to her parents, Dorothy is preceded in death by her husband, Robert Proctor, and sisters Rita Wehner and Bernice Ziskovsky.
