At Pennswood Village, Dorothy was involved in a number of community and service activities including the Display Cabinet, Trips and Worship Committees, as well as volunteering in the Gift Shop, the Mail Room and for Meals on Wheels. She maintained church affiliation with the Pennswood Interdenominational Services.
