She served on the Board of Trustees Southwest Texas Methodist Hospital (1993-1995). Dorothy was Duchess of the Army in the Court of Adventure in 1936. She was a member of the San Antonio County Club, the Battle of Flowers Association, and Revelers.

She was an avid bridge player, middle handicapped golfer, and loved to travel to the beach and mountains. Her favorite mode of travel was cruising. She loved to make fried chicken, divinity, mocha cake, pineapple upside-down cake, and fudge for her family and friends.
