Dorothy Osolind, age 71, of Canton, MI beloved wife of Thomas for 52 years, mother, grandmother, bargain-hunter, mystery novel sleuth, savvy needlepointer, and Soduko enthusiast, passed on January 29, 2017. Born on August 2, 1945 to Emil and Ann Zieblo (the last day of the historic, peacekeeping Potsdam Conference), she left this world on a Sunday after a brave-hearted battle against the rare disease Sine Scleroderma. With a kind heart and instinctive ability to adapt to change, Dorothy lived in various cities in South Carolina and Michigan. Given her Midwestern and Southern values, she spent her life uniting people, spreading sunshine, and "promoting peace." Throughout her diverse career, Dorothy served as beautician, bank teller, sales clerk, cafeteria supervisor, and teacher's assistant for disadvantaged children. A creative romantic, she believed in the concept of soul mates and an abundance of good. She once penned lyrics to the acoustic theme song for the movie "Somewhere in Time" for her husband. Dorothy's love, pride and joy also included her son and daughter, Derek and Kirsten; grandsons, Alexander and Brendan; daughter-in-law, Carolyn; and rescue dogs, Saxony, Pepper, and Prince. Donations may be made in her remembrance to the Scleroderma Foundation.
