“Who can see the wind, neither you nor I, but the trees bow their heads as it passes by.” — C. Rosetti
Dorothy – Child of the Heartland. Glorious spring days spent gazing over lilies of the valley on the south bend of the St. Joe River. Rushing out in the chill of winter to glide effortlessly over nearby icy ponds. Mother lost at a tender age. First husband lost to the good war. One must endure. The sun always shines after the storm – a brighter day will come. Embarking on a new path to a lush valley of green. The pride of your life – your three boys, lifelong friendships, fun, a marvelous sparkling time in the west in a setting never to be duplicated.
Dorothy was the child of Frieda (Starling) Nash and John W. Nash. She now reunites with both, along with her husband, Gilbert Hart; sister, Mary Gebhardt; and brother, John F. Nash.
She is survived by her sons, Gregory (Vicki) Nash Hart, Matthew (Jeanne) Hart, Douglas Joseph Hart; grandchildren, Abraham John Hart, Nathanial Joseph Hart, Hayley Rae Hart; great-granddaughter, Tallulah Hart; brother, Joseph (Myra) Nash; and much-loved nieces and nephews.
She was a 59-year member of Green Valley Country Club and a founding member of the Lilac Club, which supports the Oakland Children’s Hospital. She gave a full measure of support to her husband Gilbert running Bernheim-Myers and Harts West men’s clothing businesses in Vallejo and surrounding California cities over many decades.
In order to have a friend, you must be a friend. Dorothy had many loving friends. We are hoping they can join our family in a celebration of her life at noon Tuesday, March 25, 2014, at Paradise Valley Estates Community Center, 2600 Estates Drive, Fairfield, Calif. All are welcome.
Nos mos simper amor te.
