Dorothy “Jean” Stimach was born to Glen and Bertha (Linnaberry) Harrison on May 5, 1932 in Kansas City, Ks. She graduated from Wyandotte High School, went to dental school and became a dental assistant for a local dentist. Dorothy married Al Stimach and had 5 children; Jean, Cheryl, Al Jr., John and Lizz. She loved her church, St. Patrick in KCK, and participated in, volunteered and served on many committees.
Dorothy loved family. Being a Cinco De Mayo baby, she was always willing to host a fiesta. Dorothy loved “owls” of any kind. In her earlier years she loved to bowl. She loved games, dominos, cards, word search, puzzles and especially BINGO! Dorothy was an avid KC Chiefs fan until the day she passed away. She said ‘MAHOMES is gonna be a Lenny “The Kool” Jr.” and she would know because she and the love of her life attended the 1969 Super Bowl in New Orleans driving in a yellow Cadillac with two other couples. She loved “her” chiefs.
Dorothy lived and loved life. She loved her friends who knew her as “Jean” her family who called her “Aunt Dorothy”, her CB Club as “Silver fox” and to her kids, she was just “Mom” “Grandma” and “Great Grandma Sitmach”. She was preceded in death by the love of her life “Big Al” and her daughter Cheryl. She is survived by;
Jean Dobbie (Jeremy, Jeff, Joseph, Angela, and Ashley); Al Jr. and Julie Stimach (Allison, John and Mark); John and Linda Stimach (Hayden, Neil and Reid); Lizz and Mike Stoker (Beau, Mitch, and Lilly) and her 20 Great Grandkids, whom she loved and spoiled them as much as THEIR parents. She will be so very missed.
