New Hope, Pa: Dorothy "Dottie" Holcombe, 85 died Monday, March 15, 2021 at Neshaminy Manor Care Center.

Born and raised in Carversville, Pa. Dottie lived for a number of years in Horsham, and most recently in New Hope. She worked as a bookkeeper for Mohawk Electric for over twenty years. Dottie saw the good in everyone and her kind personality made people want to be close to her. She always made it a point to donate to various groups that cared for animals. She loved connecting with the community at Carversville Church at their annual Oyster & Pork Supper. As well she loved watching football and cheering for the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. She was a loving mother and great friend, an avid outdoorswoman who loved fishing and an accomplished athlete in her early years. She obtained her pilot’s license at a time not many women did. She was a true Renaissance woman. She had been there, done it all and done it great.
