Dorothy was born February 18, 1961, in St. Paul, Minnesota, to Walter and Shirley (DeValerio) Lindstrom. She attended and graduated from Humboldt High School in St. Paul. She then worked in the service industry, waitressing and bartending and worked for an answering service personal. She moved to Northfield in 2003. Here she worked as a bartender for the VFW Post 4393 for over 11 years. Dorothy volunteered with Meals on Wheels. She would also do anything with local benefits or bring food in for potluck suppers and helped hang posters.

Dorothy was the type of person that would help anyone. She was a loving grandmother to Erika and Addison and they were her pride and joy whom she loved dearly. Dorothy had a passion for gardening and would bring fresh salsa in the Fall. She also enjoyed fishing and was a social butterfly. She will be sadly missed by her family and the friends she made over the years.

Dorothy passed away at the age of 55, Monday, December 12, 2016. She is survived by her daughter Danielle Gates of Northfield; two granddaughters Erika and Addison of Northfield; three sisters Charlene; Lorrie; Michele; and special friend Dean. She was preceded in death by her parents, a brother Jeff Lindstrom and the love of her life and special friend Emil Miller.

A Celebration of Life will be held Sunday, January 8, 2017, from 2 PM to 6 PM at the VFW Post 4393 in Northfield. In lieu of flowers, memorials are preferred. Arrangements by Bierman Funeral Home.
