Dorothy Marie Wolff Goebel died of COVID-19 on May 21, 2020 at Riverside Rehab and Healthcare in Alton IL. She was 92. Dorothy lived most of her life in Prairietown (unincorporated Madison County) where she and her husband farmed 57 years until his death in 2004.

Dorothy loved gardening, birds, animals, entertaining, and cooking for guests. Dorothy was a member of the St. Peter’s Lutheran Church, St. Peter’s Ladies Aid, Prairie Unit Home Extension and Election Judge for Moro Township for many years.

Her family visited her regularly until the nursing homes shut down due to COVID-19. Once she caught coronavirus, her health deteriorated quickly and she died without her loving family surrounding her.

Dorothy is missed deeply by her daughter, four grandsons, and large extended family.
