Dorothy (Wipf) Decker, daughter of Jacob and Katherina Wipf was born on April 10, 1972, in Ipswich. She lived in Plainview Colony until she was united in marriage to Henry Decker on July 16, 1995. She then moved to Pembrook Colony where she resided until her passing.
Dorothy was a cheerful, beautiful lady with an enormous, giving heart. She was always on the go and ready to leave her work behind to help others. She always welcomed any kind of company with open arms. She had a smile to share and lightened up a room upon entering. Everyone loved to tease her, because she always took it with a smile. She was a sister/wife we could share secrets with, laughed with, cried with, and loved to spend time with.
Dorothy made numerous jackets for all her friends and family, and always made sure her family was well taken care of. She was the sunshine in our family and a light in our lives. She left behind a great example on how to treat other people.
