Dorothy Rose Sos

Dorothy, loving mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and friend, passed away peacefully in Grand Junction, CO. The eldest of 11 children, she was born in Davin, WV, to Wesley & Ona Toler.

In her earlier years, Dorothy enjoyed going camping with her husband, Joe, sister, Glenna, & brother-in-law, Buford. They would fish, play cards, and just enjoy their time together. She also enjoyed weekly bowling on her women’s league. Dorothy worked at JC Penney from 1985 – 2003 where many people remember her as being very helpful and friendly. After retirement, much of her time was spent at home enjoying her rose bushes, and shopping with her sister and grandchildren. During the Christmas holiday, she baked cookies and fudge to take to her son’s shop for all to enjoy. More recently, Dorothy looked forward to going to lunch at the Silt firehouse every Wednesday and church every Sunday where she never hesitated to help where needed. She always thought of the needs of others far before her own. She dearly cherished the time spent with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, and will always be remembered for her kind and gentle spirit.

Dorothy was preceded in death by her husband, Joe, and son-in-law, John Cerise. She is survived by 4 sisters, Glenna, Linda Kay, Patty & Barb, and 3 brothers, Alfred, Bernie & Eddie Jo, along with her daughter, Linda Cerise, son Michael Sos (Karen), 5 granddaughters, and 7 great-grandchildren.

A service will be held on Saturday, December 20th, at 2:00 PM at the First Baptist Church, 632 Grand Ave., in Silt, CO. Please join us for pie, her favorite dessert, following the service. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made to the First Baptist Church in Silt.
