- Dorothy was the daughter of Harry Clyde Morrison and Alta Vanderryt Morrison.
She was born in Sutton, Braxton, West Virginia in 1914 but, according to the census, by 1920 the family had moved to Charleston, Kanawha, West Virginia at 208 Tawnee Avenue.
Probably prior to her parents' divorce in 1926, Alta moved to Custer City, Custer, Oklahoma and took John and Dorothy.
In 1928 Dorothy's mother remarried to Lindley E. Hutchens in Independence, Montgomery, Missouri.
She graduated from Sand Springs High School in Sand Springs, Tulsa County, Oklahoma on 15 May 1931. She was listed as Dorothy Morrison Hutchens.
After graduating, she returned to Charleston, Kanawha, West Virginia.
In 1932 she married Ben R. Londeree in Charleston. They had two children there: Ben, Jr. in 1934 and Patricia Alta in 1936.

Prior to the family move to Ottawa, Illinois, Dorothy and children moved to an apartment complex a few blocks away from their Venable home for a few months.
In 1943 the family moved to Ottawa, Lasalle, Illinois for about 1.5 years. They shared homes with the John Morrison family (Dorothy's brother).
In 1944 the family moved back to Charleston, West Virginia for about 1.5 years.
In 1945 the family moved to Toledo, Lucas, Ohio about 1 block from the Toledo Zoo.
In late 1946 the family moved 1.5 miles east of Perrysburg, Wood County, Ohio on 5 acres on Simmons Road. It was nicknamed "Puppy Acres". Perrysburg is a suburb of Toledo. Before moving in, indoor plumbing was installed. Subsequently, a major addition was made including kitchen and dining rooms and a two car garage. The children attended and eventually graduated from Perrysburg schools.
After her divorce in 1949, Dorothy, children, and Alta Hutchens (Dorothy's mother) lived at "Puppy Acres" until her marriage to Ed Ray in 1951.
After the marriage to Ed Ray, Dorothy, children, and Alta Hutchens moved in with the Ray family at 201 West Boundary in Perrysburg. Dorothy's mother was set up with a mother-in-law apartment on the second floor which included a second entrance to the outside. Dorothy's children graduated from Perrysburg High School during this time.
After the divorce from Ed Ray, Dorothy and her mother returned to "Puppy Acres".
After marrying Carl Storts in 1964, Dorothy moved in with him at 243 East Indiana Avenue in Perrysburg.
The house and 54/100 of an acre on Simmons Road was sold to the State of Ohio for I-75 on 1 October 1965. I believe that the remaining 4.5 acres were sold to a neighbor.
On 28 August 1971 she took out a loan to purchase a small home at 555 East 6th Street in Perrysburg and remained there until 1984.
The final 6 weeks of her life she stayed with Don (son-in-law) and Pat (daughter) Richards in Berea, Ohio. Pat and Don were newly married.
Dorothy donated her body to the Medical College of Ohio in Toledo, Lucas County, Ohio. Subsequently, she was cremated and buried.
