Life Story for
Dorothy Lee ""Dottie"" Barto
Dorothy Barto (Dottie) passed peacefully at the home of her son and daughter-in-law, Michael and Pat Barto, on Monday, Dec. 7, 2015.
Born Dorothy Lee Mick in Gassaway, W.V., on Oct. 24, 1924, Dottie is now free from her battle with Alzheimer’s disease to join her loved ones who have preceded her in death. As a young cadet nurse, she met and married the love of her life, then Army First Sgt. Jack Barto. When Capt. Barto retired from the Army, they settled in Winter Park, Fla. Dottie came to live in the Wood River Valley five and a half years ago.
She is survived by her son, Michael Barto; granddaughter, Sharon Barto Gouran; and sister, Nancy Dupee.
