Dot graduated from SUNY Cortland in 1952 with a Bachelor's Degree in education.

Dot enjoyed a wide variety of outdoor and athletic activities, and was highly regarded as an outstanding golfer. Her other interests included travelling, hand-crafting jewelry and baskets, knitting, reading and spending time with family. She and her husband John were proud to have been able to travel to all 50 states.
