Dorothy Theresa Walsh (Dottie Schubis) passed peacefully at the Monroe Hospital Hospice in Monroe, WI, on Sept 7, 2022. The Lord called her home after a day of quiet comfort with her children and grandchildren, spent outside under a blue sky with birds singing and gentle breezes.
Dottie was born December 19th, 1932 in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, New York City to Agnes Ciesinska (Schubis) and Sigmund Przybyszewski (Ziggy Schubis).

They raised four children together while living in Dumont, New Jersey then they settled in Monroe for the next thirty years.
Dorothy had a contagious laugh that wouldn't stop, an inquiring mind that always needed to be busy, and a talent for cooking scrumptious meals. She earned her degree from St. Joseph's College in Manhattan, NYC in Biology and also earned a teaching certificate as well as a certificate in maternal and baby care. Following college she taught Kindergarten in Harlem, New York City.
