Dorothy Mae Natter

Dorothy Mae Natter, age 95, of Swanton, Ohio passed away peacefully
surrounded by her family on Wednesday, February 9, 2022, at the Embassy of Swanton. Dorothy was born the only child to John W. and Susie O. (Patterson) Werner on March 28, 1926, in Hannibal, Missouri. She married the love of her life, William R. Natter on February 9, 1946.

For many years as well, Dorothy worked as a bank teller at First National Bank, a store clerk at IGA and worked at Maumee Quickprint.

Dorothy was a member of St. Richard Catholic Parish and was very involved with the Rosary Altar Society and funeral dinner team. She was very talented at sewing American Girl doll clothing and crocheting afghans for all her family to keep themselves cozy. Most of all Dorothy looked forward to spending time with her children and her grandchildren.

Patricia (Tom) Coleman, William Natter, Janet (Ken) Buck, Deborah (Charles) Weagley, Gloria (Carl) Calcara, Kevin Natter and Christina (Tim) Krohn; sisters-in-law, Carol Arnett, Judy Bartalsky and Carol Natter; 25 grandchildren; 46 great-grandchildren and 6 great-great-grandchildren.
