Dorothy entered the Motion Picture Country House and Hospital no
doubt knowing she was in the final stages of her battle with colon cancer.
The cancer eventually spread to her liver and on Monday April 8th
around noon Dorothy passed away.
A Requiem High Mass was celebrated by the Rev. Finbar Hall at St.
Anastasia Catholic Church in Playa del Rey. About 50 people attended
Dorothy's funeral and both Eddie Mannix, MGM's vice president and
Howard Strickling, MGM's Publicity Director were among the pallbearers.
Dorothy's final resting place was a simple grave at Holy Cross Cemetery
in Culver City, California.
