Dorothy was born Nov. 8, 1924, at Bloomington, the daughter of Roy A. and Ruth Bodell Ramseyer. She married James Mitchell Duguid on March 3, 1947, at La Crosse, Wis. He died May 24, 2006.

Survivors include a son, Robert Duguid, Lincoln; two daughters, Carol (Mark) Hootman, Washington, and Barbara (Mark) Ungs, Minnetonka, Minn.; and five grandchildren, Jake Duguid, Daniel and Mary Hootman, and Laura and David Ungs.

Her parents and a son, Dr. John Duguid, preceded her in death.

She was a committed member of Second Presbyterian Church, Bloomington, where she sang in the Chapel Choir for many years. She endeared many friends as a member of the Leticia Green Stevenson Chapter of Daughters of the American Revolution, the Margaret Fuller Book Club, the Longfellow Club, Kappa, Kappa Gamma Alumni Association, PEO Chapter AW, and the Bloomington/Normal Women’s Club.

Dorothy graduated from Bloomington High School in 1942, where she was the editor of the school’s yearbook. She attended Illinois Wesleyan University and the Art Institute of Chicago, before graduating from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where she met James Duguid. James’ career in the United States Air Force sent the family to a variety of places to live, including Ohio, the Azorean Islands, Texas, New Mexico and Iowa, before retiring in Bloomington.

She received her teaching certificate from Coe College in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. In addition to raising her four children, Dorothy taught French and English and enjoyed painting, drawing and weaving.

To the delight of her friends and family, Dorothy had a marvelous wit and mind for details that made her an avid word-game opponent.

Dorothy dearly loved art, music and her family.
