Dorothy graduated from Warren G. Harding High School in 1946.

She was a self-employed seamstress, a profession she enjoyed for over 40 years.

She also enjoyed many years volunteering for the Trumbull County Election Board, where she appreciated the opportunity to greet and assist the local people. In her later years, Dorothy supported veterans and knitted blankets for the Cleveland Veterans’ Home.

Dorothy will be missed by her sons, Simeon Trombitas and his wife, Kellie Snyder Trombitas, of San Antonio, Texas and John Trombitas, Jr. and his wife, Mary Trombitas, of Clearwater, Florida; three grandchildren, Paul Trombitas and his wife, Nichole, Simeon Trombitas and Erin Ludwig; five great-grandchildren, Colin and Olivia Trombitas and Aislyn, Christopher and William Ludwig; sister, Marian Mermer and niece, Dorian Mermer.
