Dorothy G. Zahn
March 4, 1932 - July 1, 2024

Dorothy Grace Zahn, 92, of Porterfield, formerly of Milwaukee, passed away peacefully in West Bend surrounded by her family.

Dorothy graduated from West Milwaukee High School, the first High School graduate in her family.  She married Richard Zahn (Dick) on May 17, 1952, and together they raised five children.  She held many jobs over her lifetime, but taking care of her family was most important to her.  She enjoyed quilting and was a member of the Northwoods Quilt Guild.  Dorothy enjoyed spending time outdoors and gardening (mostly cutting grass).  On her 70th birthday, she bought herself a brand new snowmobile, which she loved to ride fast!  She was definitely loved for being "One of a kind".
