On April 17, 2019 at the age of 102, Dorothy M. Geltz fell into her eternal slumber to awaken in the arms of her heavenly father and reunited with her loved ones that passed before her. As per Dorothy's request, there will not be a visitation. Private graveside services will be held at a date yet to be determined.

Dorothy was born on 9/16/1916 in Farley, IA at her grandmother’s house to Ora and Gustav Winter. She met her husband Glen at a barn dance in Brandon, IA. They married on 4/18/1936. From this union, they were blessed with two sons Richard and Darrel.

During her lifetime Dorothy was involved in many clubs, organizations and the United Methodist Church in Brandon. Dorothy’s pride and joy was her family. She enjoyed attending the activities and functions of her sons, grandchildren and friend’s grandchildren. She was an avid reader, loved her daily crossword challenge and a sports enthusiast. She loved having her family together for holidays, Sunday dinners and picnics. Dorothy will be greatly missed by her family. We know she will be watching over us and will forever be our greatest cheerleader.

Dorothy was preceded in death by her parents; her husband Glen (2/12/1973); grandson Jonas (5/27/2003); and her daughter-in-law Beverly (2/16/2019).

She is survived by her sons Richard and Darrel and their families consisting of 9 grandchildren (Rick, Kathy, Robin (Laura), Rhonda (Dan), Kim, (Dennis) Rod, Dawn(Jeri), Jason (Shelley) & Pamela (Adam) and 29 grand/great/great-great grandchildren and 2 great-great grandchildren due to arrive this year.

The family wishes to thank the Monticello Nursing Center for the loving care given to our mother/grandmother. They also wish to acknowledge the words of sympathy from friends and our communities.

I remember Dorothy and my Mom (Eva) getting together with their friends and discussing the latest that was going on in Brandon.
They also got together and played cards once a week and laugh and have a good time. Simple times but fun.
I will never forget the laughter I heard as they did their “discussions”
I am so sorry for your loss and know you have a lot of good memories to hang on to.
