Mrs. Dorothy E. Mack, fondly known as “Dottie”, age 92, of Oklahoma City, OK, formerly of New Castle, DE and North East, MD, died on Thursday, January 26, 2017.
A native Delawarean, Mrs. Mack was born in Wilmington, DE on June 30, 1924, daughter of the late Dorothy (Fraser) and Robert Cline. She graduated proudly from Pierre S, duPont High School on June 10, 1942. During that time, she participated in many dance contests where she excelled in the “Jitterbug”. Later she was employed by the Wiltex Company in Wilmington, DE, retiring after many years of service. In addition, she also worked for a short time for Colonial Florist in New Castle.
Active in the community, Mrs. Mack served on many committees for her children’s sports teams and also volunteered her time on numerous community initiatives. She was a long time member of Joseph B. Stahl Post #30 American Legion. For many years she enjoyed following the Fightin’ Blue Hens, first as a football season ticket holder and second, proudly watching her grandson, Cliff Brumbaugh, compete for the Blue hens baseball team. Mrs. Mack really enjoyed her “tailgating” friends and others she met along the way.
