Dorothy (Lisse) Grove

Dorothy Grove was born March 13, 1935, and passed into eternal life on February 26, 2024.  She was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Chuck, and leaves behind her loving children, Beth (Paul) Kelly, Jewel (Juan Carlos) Alejos, Laurie Hill, Kristy (Roger) Henderson, Sherry Grove, and Rick (Lorrie) Grove, her grandchildren – Sean (Kim) Kelly, Brian Kelly, Alexandra (Hunter) Gits, Gabriela Alejos, Dylan (McKenzie) Hill, Logan Hill, Payton Grove, Zoe Grove, Erika Henderson, Jason Henderson, and her great grandchild Adelina Gits.

Dorothy was born and raised in Ohio and graduated from The Ohio State University where she met Chuck.  She worked as a teacher at the Ohio School for the Blind before retiring to raise her family.  Dorothy and Chuck moved often for his role as a school superintendent, ultimately finding their home in the mountains of Colorado and Wyoming.    In each community where they lived, Dorothy involved herself in organizations and programs that made life better for its residents.  Dorothy was an avid supporter of the arts.  She recently was a member of the Pinedale WY Fine Arts Council, and previously served on the Moffat County Council for the Arts and Humanities, and the Colorado Council for the Arts.  Dorothy also had a soft spot for teenagers and was a founding member of Teen Court in Moffat County.
Dorothy loved animals, and ascribed to the philosophy that if one was good, ten were better.  She surrounded herself with dogs, cats, and a variety of rabbits, ducks, and other miscellaneous animals.  Dorothy fell in love with horses at a young age and became an accomplished rider.  Later in life, she enjoyed the neighbor’s horses grazing from her home in Pinedale.
Friends are invited to join the family for a mass being offered for the repose of Dorothy’s soul at 10:00 a.m. on March 13th at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Montrose, CO..  The mass will also be livestreamed at stmarymontrose.org. There will be a vigil on Tuesday, March 12th at 7:00 also at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Montrose, CO..  In lieu of flowers, contributions in Dorothy’s name can be made to these organizations in Pinedale, WY that she loved so dearly:   Pinedale Fine Arts Center, Our Lady of Peace Catholic Church, or Rendezvous Pointe Senior Center.
