Dorothy M. (Schmidt) Sherman, 90, of South Beaver Twp. passed away on Tuesday, July 21, 2020, at Good Samaritan Hospice in Beaver.
Dorothy was born in Hopewell Twp., on November 20, 1929, to the late Frederick John and Bessie (McBride) Schmidt. She was a 1947 graduate of Hopewell High School and the former Garfield Business College, Beaver Falls.

Dorothy married Donald W. Sherman on June 21, 1952. They spent the next 68 years together on their dairy farm in South Beaver Township. On nice sunny afternoons they enjoyed flying their Cessna 172 airplane and rejoicing in God's creation from the sky.
Dorothy's first priority was always her family and then her church. She enjoyed cooking, baking, gardening and her famous roadside flowers.
She was a member of Fairview Reformed Presbyterian Church in Ohioville, the Grange, several farming organizations, the Pennsylvania and National Flying Farmers Association and a Little Beaver Lioness.
