Obituary for Dorothy Louise "Dottie" Machemer

Dorothy Louise “Dottie” Machemer, 72, of Westminster, passed away on Monday, September 9, 2019 at Carroll Hospital Center.
Born December 8, 1946 in Cumberland, she was the daughter of the late Paul and Madeline (Valentine) Dircks. She was the loving and devoted wife of 42 years to the late Waldemar Rudy “Walt” Machemer, whom predeceased her August 1, 2013.
Dottie was employed by Sweet Heart Cup, and worked there for many years. She faithfully provided care for her husband after he sustained a serious spinal cord injury. After her husband’s passing, Dorothy found great joy in helping other family and friends in need, often putting others before herself. Above all she loved her family and the time spent with them.

Surviving her are children and their spouses Margie Null and Jerry of New Windsor, John McDonald and Kimberly of York, PA; sister Barbara Buckley; grandchildren Daniel and Taylor; and numerous nieces and nephews.
In addition to her husband and parents she was predeceased by sister and brother-in-law Pauline and Leo Armentrout and Margaret Bishop.
