She was 91 years young, born at home February 15, 1923, to Sanford and Ruth Redman, in Brownsville, Pennsylvania where she graduated high school in 1941. She was a member of the Twirling Corp, the largest in their district. She was the only high school graduate and longest surviving member of the Redman family.
She married Thomas Krlin, with whom she had two sons before moving to Elmira, New York, where she remained until his death. She was united in marriage to Bill Trump, October 24, 1963. He took her all over the United States and to several foreign countries seeing the great wonders of the world, something she only dreamed about as a child. She loved and cherished Bill.
She was very proud that she worked for the Thatcher Glass Corporation for 25 years and received an award for her services. In 1969, she and Bill moved to Oilton, Oklahoma to be closer to her sons and grandchildren.
Dorothy was an active member of her church, Oilton Christ Fellowship. She had a passion for helping people! She was always available to anyone needing a helping hand. She loved life and was always a positive influence wherever she was. She loved to sing and dance and anyone who knew her probably heard her yodel. Her zest for life was still apparent at 91 when she tried to sing her favorite lullaby, "Little Buckaroo."
"Gram" as her family all called her, loved her children and grandchildren. Christmas Day was always spent at her house. She loved the time she could spend with her family and especially her grandchildren.
She is survived by her loving family members, her sons Thomas Krlin and wife Carolyn and Pastor Gary Krlin and wife Diane of Oilton, Oklahoma.
