DOROTHY WILSON
Cedar Rapids


Dorothy Wilson passed
into heaven on Sept. 30, 2020, after a prolonged battle with metastasized melanoma that spread too quickly and treatment was not successful.
Dorothy leaves behind a daughter, Lydia (Eric); son, Douglas (Kim); two grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren.
She taught high school math and chemistry in Cedar Rapids for many years, inspiring many students. Dorothy had such a spark to her. She would do anything for anyone, and loved her family deeply. A celebration of life will be scheduled for her at a later date.
Good journey, Mom; till we meet again.
