Obituary for Dorothy "Dot" Lucille Grant

Worthington, MN

Dorothy “Dot” Lucille Grant, age 99, 7 months, 1 day, was born on July 26, 1919, on a farm east of Rushmore, MN, the daughter of Allen and Mathilde (Mohr) Lawrence. She attended Hilltop Country School near Rushmore.
In the summer, Dorothy would help herd the cattle. She also helped milk 10 cows by hand every morning and evening with her Dad, brothers, and sisters and would take the cows down to the watering hole and bring them back home as there were no fences yet. She was a tomboy and loved to be outdoors. Dorothy walked two miles to school and rode bareback to get the mail a mile away.
Dorothy married Vernon Grant on June 3, 1937, in Sioux Falls, SD. They raised three children, Anna, Gary, and Lewis. She worked for JC Penney for 32 years until her retirement. They moved into Worthington, MN in 1961 and she entered Crossroads Care Center in June of 2014. Dorothy passed away on Wednesday, February 27, 2019, at the Crossroads Care Center in Worthington, MN.
Grandma enjoyed going fishing with the family. She would pick up night crawlers the night before with Mary, who was so scared of worms, and whenever Mary saw one she would scream and Grandma would tell her to “go in the house”. Grandma’s famous saying was “If you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all”.
Dorothy is survived by daughter, Anna (Robert) Lappegard of Dickens, IA; son, Gary (Barbara) Grant of Tacoma, WA; daughter-in-law, Karon Grant of Worthington, MN; eight grandchildren, Merle, Mary, Bonnie, Joy, Susan, Andrew, Peggy, and Tina; thirteen great grandchildren; nine great great grandchildren and two on the way.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Vernon; son, Lewis; four grandchildren; one grandson-in-law; five brothers, and six sisters.
