Dorothy Jean Bock Kittridge died peacefully June 4, 2020 at Hospice House in Poland, Ohio. She was 85 years old. Dottie was a lifelong resident of East Liverpool, daughter of Myrtle and Maurice Bock. She married her high school sweetheart and the love of her life, the late Robert C. (Bob) Kittridge in 1953. Together, they created a beautiful home and family, raising their four children in a home filled with laughter, song and faith. Dottie and Bob spent the last decades of their lives traveling the country in their RV and volunteering at state parks across the nation. Dottie was a loving and fun grandmother and great grandmother. She will be remembered for her radiant smile, her dry wit and her belly laughs.
Left to cherish her memory are her children, Chuck (Pam) Kittridge, of Massillon, Ohio, Rob (Judy) Kittridge of Valparaiso, Indiana, Sally (Steve) Smith of Wellsville, Ohio and Linda (Lee) Michling of Plum, PA. There are 12 grandchildren and 9 great grandchildren.
Dottie was preceded in passing by her beloved husband, Bob and her brother George Bock. The family extends our greatest thanks to Hospice House for their excellent care and to Moms loving friends and neighbors at Calcutta Commons. Honoring Dotties wishes, no services are planned. The family will hold a private memorial at a later date.
The Martin MacLean Altmeyer Chapel in Calcutta has been entrusted with her arrangements.
