Dorothy became part of the Prospectus Berco family in 2009 and was lovingly known as a diva, always had her nails painted and enjoyed wearing her jewelry.

She loved vacationing and going on cruises.
Dorothy is survived by her three brothers: Charles Troop, of Sinking Spring, Richard Troop (Dawn), of The Villages, Florida, and Harry Troop, Jr. (Margaret) of Reading. In addition to her parents and husband, she is predeceased by her sisters: Anne Messimer and Doris Snow.
