On January 10, 1949, Dorothy married Albert Soupir in St. Catherine’s Catholic Church. The couple farmed near Morgan until 1962 when they purchased a farm near Clements. Following Albert’s death, Dorothy moved into Redwood Falls in 1991. She was a member of St. Catherine’s Catholic Church and the Christian Mothers. Dorothy volunteered her time working at the Food Shelf, delivering Meals on Wheels, and helping with church functions.
In her spare time, Dorothy loved to play cards and dominos. She enjoyed flower gardening, visiting friends at Garnette Gardens, and shopping. Dorothy enjoyed the company of many friends through the years. Her family was very important to Dorothy, as was her church. She was a woman of prayer.
