Dorothy was born on February 1, 1925, the daughter of William Simon Baskin and his beloved wife, Fannie B. (Cameron) Baskin. She married Shelton V. Boyd on August 23, 1959. Although Shelton and Dorothy had no children of their own, they were “parents” to all of their nieces and nephews and played a significant role in their lives.
During her life, Dorothy worked for Chester’s in Beloit, WI and the Chrysler Assembly plant in Belvidere, IL. Dorothy was a faithful and loving member of the Wesley C.M.E. Church and the Quest Club.
Dorothy was preceded in death by her parents, William and Fannie B. Baskin, brothers, William Simon Baskin, Hosie Baskin, Elton Robert Baskin, and her sisters, Gladys Tweedle, Clotea Moore, and Fannie Hill.
She is survived by a host of loving cousins, nieces, nephews, great nieces and nephews, and great-great nieces and nephews. In addition to family members, Dorothy had many friends.
In lieu of flowers, it is Dorothy’s desire that donations be made directly to Cedar Crest Health Care facility so that others in the community can receive the same compassion care, kindness and support that was provided to her.
