Dorothy May McKenzie
Dorothy May McKenzie, of Beall School Road, Frostburg, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, Nov. 12, 2019, at her residence.
Born on April 24, 1939, in Barton, she was the daughter of the late Edward and Hazel (Smith) Matthews. She was preceded in death by five brothers, Raymond, David, Robert, Lewis and Kenny Matthews; and one sister, Evelyn Resh.
She is survived by two sisters, Ruthanne Wilson and Shirley Bayse.
She was also preceded in death by her husband, Bernard McKenzie, on Sept. 7th of this year. We think she died from a broken heart after being married 63 years.
Dorothy was a homemaker most of her life but later became a home health aide.
Surviving are her daughter, Brenda Rafferty and fiancé, James "Marvin" McKenzie, Frostburg; one grandson, Matthew Rafferty and fiancé, Sarah Bittner, Mount Savage; one granddaughter, Ashley McKenzie; and three great-granddaughters, Chloe, Mattie and McKenzie Rafferty.
Brenda would like everyone to know that she couldn't imagine a better life than the one she had with her adoptive parents, Dorothy and Bernard.
