She was a 1961 graduate of Graham High School, where she was a member of the High School Marching Band, Concert Band, and a pianist for the Boy's choir. Dorothy's life revolved around going to her son's, grandchildren's, and great-grandchildren's sporting events, concerts, and any event or activities they were in. She was always known to everyone as the one who had a camera in one hand and another camera around her neck, and always had pictures from all the events for everyone to see. She enjoyed working with pictures. Dorothy was a lifelong member of the Terre Haute Methodist Church, where she played the piano and the organ for about 64 years, and was a choir member in the recent years. She was a member of the Vintage Voices at the United Senior Service in Springfield and the Fraternal Order of Eagles #397. Dorothy retired from the City of Springfield in December 2012, where she worked for 30 years and gained many wonderful co-workers and friends. Dorothy was blessed when she met Skinner (Donald) and had three wonderful sons: Danny, Brian, and Steve, who always referred to her as "Mom". She leaves behind her two wonderful sons, Brian (Teresa) of Raymond, OH, and Steve (Kelly) of Mechanicsburg, OH. She also leaves behind a step-daughter, Donna Clark of Columbus, IN, her six beloved grandchildren: Nicki Lee Trimble of West Liberty, OH, Adam (Stephanie) Skinner of Columbus, OH, Zachary (Amber) Skinner of Raymond, OH, Seth Skinner of Raymond, OH, Tori (William) Dudding of Columbus, OH, and Trent Skinner and his fiance, Kylie, of Mechanicsburg, OH, her five great-grandchildren, Kohlton, Rylan, Lucas, Greyson, Haven, Callie, Chase, and Carson Crosby, sisters, Sarah Thornton of Sidney, OH, and Elizabeth (Bill) Pumphrey of St. Paris, OH, brothers: Bob (Wilda) Leamman of Urbana, OH, and Mike (Laurie) Leamman of Winchester, VA, sister-in-law, Carol (Rick) Harris of Springfield, OH, and several nieces, nephews, and cousins.
