Dorothy Mertins, age 94, passed away on Friday afternoon, April 22, 2016 at Franciscan Villa. Dorothy was born in Ives Grove, WI on February 17, 1922, daughter of the late Alfred and Olive (nee: Wrixton) Langdon.

Dorothy was married to the love of her life, Marshall M. Mertins on August 10, 1961 and shared forty three beautiful years with him until his passing on April 26, 2005. She was employed for over twenty seven years with Racine Iron and Wire Works until her retirement in 1973. She was a member of Second Presbyterian Church in Racine. In her spare time, Dorothy enjoyed crocheting afghans, word search puzzles and her winters in Florida spent with Marshall.

Dorothy was also preceded in death by her siblings, Alfred (Louella), William (Mildred), Orville (Betty); Florence (Edward) Joslin, Winifred (Jerome) Richter, Priscilla (Clifford) Miller.

Funeral services will be held at the Second Presbyterian Church, 1400 Kingston Ave, Thursday April 28, 2016, 10:30 a.m., with Rev. Alan McCalister officiating. Interment will follow at West Lawn Memorial Park. Relatives and friends may meet with the family on Wednesday at the funeral home from 5:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. and at the church on Thursday from 10:00 a.m. until time of services.
