Dorothy Lee Sherman, a member of the Moorefield community, peacefully passed away at the age of 91 on November 25, 2023. She was born on March 26, 1932, near Moorefield, WV, to Harry Holt Vetter and Una Claire Bowman Vetter. Sons Mark and Doug and four sisters and five brothers also preceded her in death. Dorothy's vibrant spirit and warm personality touched the lives of all who knew her.

 

Throughout her life, Dorothy was a dedicated wife, mother, and homemaker. She found joy in spending time with her family, including her loving husband Eugene "Tude" Sherman, whom she married on May 16, 1986.

Her love and care extended to her eight grandchildren, thirteen great-grandchildren, brother "Dick" Vetter and numerous nieces and nephews. Her extended stepfamily included stepchildren, Lloyd Sherman, Margaret Murrell, Joann See, Tim Sherman; seven step-grandchildren and five step-great-grandchildren.

 

Dorothy's zest for life was evident in her hobbies. She had a passion for bowling and was known for her competitive spirit on the lanes. A card enthusiast, she particularly enjoyed playing setback with friends and family. Additionally, Dorothy had a green thumb and spent many hours tending to her garden, cultivating beautiful flowers that brought joy to her surroundings.

 

After a long and fruitful career, Dorothy retired from the American Woodmark Corporation. Her strong work ethic, dedication, and positive attitude set an example for her colleagues and had a lasting impact on those she worked with.
