Dorothy L. Litchfield, 87, of Macomb passed away at 6:25 p.m. Thursday, September 21, 2017 at the Elms Nursing Home in Macomb.
She was born on March 11, 1930 in McDonough County to Jacob and Pearl Cheesman Stoneking. Dorothy married F. Warren Litchfield on May 22, 1948. He survives. Together they were the parents of two children, Sherry and Randy.
Over her lifetime, Dorothy worked at the Sugar Bowl, Haeger Pottery, the Ladies Fashion Dept. at Montgomery Wards and King Seeley Thermos.
Mrs. Litchfield was a loving wife, mother and grandmother.
Dorothy was a passionate gardener, known for the lovely flowers she grew and tended. Friends even nicknamed her the Flower Queen. Sometime later they could be seen driving around town in their car with the license plate flwrqn 1.
Another favorite of hers was to cook big meals for her family. We were especially fond of her lemon meringue pies and always eager to devour one or two of them. They were not only delicious, but beautiful as well. Worthy of a picture in a cooking magazine.
Preceding Dorothy in death were her parents, son Randy Alan Litchfield and infant grandson Tyler Joseph Peterson.
Family left to cherish her memory are husband Warren, daughter Sherry D. (Ray) Peterson and daughter-in-law Terra Litchfield all of Macomb, grandchildren, Stacie Thompson of Macomb, Derek (Lisa) Litchfield of Macomb, Rebecca (Scott) Wayland of Ashland, Kristen (Scott) Terry of Macomb and Trevor M. Peterson of Springfield and great-grandchildren, Lauren Thompson of Macomb, Elise Zeigler of Macomb, Oliva and Scotlynn Terry of Macomb and Heidi and Zachery Wayland of Ashland.
