Dorothy J. Huse joined her loving husband, Leo C. Huse, for eternal life on March 19, 2016. For the past 8 years she had been a resident at the Valley Vista Good Samaritan Center in Wamego, KS. She was born in St. Leo, KS on June 3, 1917. She was married to Leo for 60 years and the proud mother of five sons: Fred (Sue), Dennis (Faith), Rod, Norm (Barb), and Mark (Karen). She also had ten grandchildren, ten great grandchildren and a sister Margaret Conlin.

Dorothy lived the majority of her life between two cities—Wichita and Garden City. She was the consummate homemaker and farm wife and did not “retire” from these roles until her early 80’s when she moved to the Garden Valley Retirement Village in Garden City.  
In addition to her strong commitment to her family, her home, and her church she enjoyed playing cards and doing crafts. She loved to talk, was never idle, and clean was never clean enough. Neatness and Order were her middle names.

The Wake Service for Dorothy will be at 7:00 p.m., Tuesday, March 22 at Garnand Funeral Home, 412 N. 7th Street, Garden City, KS. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 10:30 a.m. on Wednesday March 23, at St. Dominic Catholic Church in Garden City, KS. In lieu of flowers the family invites you to make a donation to St. Catherine Hospice in care of the funeral home. Friends may call from 2:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Tuesday at Garnand Funeral Home.
