Dorothy E. Hull, 92, of North Adams Home, formerly of Camp Point, died at 9:40 a.m. Tuesday, May 14, 2019, at the home in Mendon.
Born September 20, 1926, in Denver, Illinois, Dorothy was a daughter of Orville and Laura Shaw Frohn. She attended Mendon School where she graduated from the 8th grade. She married Virgil L. Hull in the Paloma United Methodist Church on September 21, 1944. He preceded her in death on July 1, 1993.
Dorothy spent her life as a mother, homemaker, and wife. Dorothy was known for her homemade noodles as well as pies and wonderful meals. No one ever went hungry when sitting at her table for a meal. She and Virgil raised their family on their farm north of Paloma. She still was interested in the farm and was actively engaged in its operation.
She and Virgil were a lifelong member of the Paloma United Methodist Church and she was a member of the UMW ladies group. When she moved to Camp Point in 1997 she transferred her church membership to the Camp Point United Methodist Church. The church was an important part of Dorothy's life. Dorothy moved seven years ago to North Adams Home in Mendon where she was active in all activities at North Adams rarely missing chapel or any other event. She often invited staff into her room to brighten their day with a quip or to inquire about their lives.
She was known for her nightly glass of A & W Root beer. She tried hard to follow the current events of her own family and most especially enjoyed seeing the latest picture or video of the great-grandchildren. She enjoyed the many visits by family and friends.
