Dorothy Sue "Susie" Sorenson (Guthrie)

April 21, 1957 — May 2, 2020

Dorothy graduated from Fraser High School in 1975. For many years she worked as a housekeeper for Cass City United Methodist Church. Dorothy’s main love and focus was always her family, especially her children and grandchildren. A good cook, she kept her family well fed and no one ever went hungry. A favorite family meal was her famous pigs in a blanket. Dorothy was fond of visiting B’s in Cass City and recently Murphy’s of Bad Axe for a treat of coffee and donuts. She looked forward to the Christmas holiday when she could bake Christmas cookies and make memories with her grandchildren.
