Faith in God was the center of Dorothy’s life. She was a member of The Chapel in Akron. She enjoyed reading the daily paper, her weekly visits to the beauty shop, golfing, bowling, and boating on the Portage Lakes with her children and grandchildren. She enjoyed sunny days sitting on her porch swing and short road trips to Amish country. Her nieces and nephew always had a special place in her heart. She appreciated her time with her care giver, Teresa Strong, who's compassionate Christian care enriched her last few months.
She was preceded in death by her loving husband of 56 years, Frederick George Krager, her parents (George and Alma Kasten), sister Esther (Kasten) Hicks, brother-in-law Denton Hicks, and brothers William and Robert Kasten.
