Obituary for Dorothy A. Fansler

Dorothy A. Fansler, age 96, a longtime resident of Lapeer, passed away January 9th, 2020. Dorothy was born on July 22, 1923, in Clifford, MI. She attended North Branch High School when it has just been built and was the first graduating class of that school in 1941. She lived through the Great Depression, WWII, and sending a son off to fight in the Korean War. After 4 months of courting, she married Doug Fansler and they were together for 69 years until his passing on April 21st, 2011.

Dorothy was talented in many ways. She was skilled at painting, crafting, dress making, and she could reupholster just about anything. She and Doug loved to camp and golf and spend time with their family. She and Doug never missed a grandchild's sporting event and they were always there to lend a hand when needed. Even if that meant remodeling a home are putting in some hard work.

Dorothy is survived by her son Dale Fansler of Waterford; daughter Denae (Ray) Tait of North Branch; daughter-in-law Margaret Fansler; six grandchildren Shawn (Emily) Fansler, Indigo (Jamie) Stewart, Bruce (Christi) Fansler, Derek Fansler, Logan (Abbie) Tait, Luke (Taylor Williamson) Tait; 14 great-grandchildren and several great-great-grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her husband Doug H. Fansler and her son Douglas R. Fansler.

Dorothy will be laid to rest at Mt. Hope Cemetery in Lapeer. Friends and family may visit on the day of service from 10:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m.
