Dorothy Norris Obituary

Dorothy Norris, 67, of Wilmington, DE, passed away at home on December 1, 2023, in the arms of her loving husband.  With family by her side, Dottie bravely fought a two and a half year battle with colon cancer.  She endured with her unparalleled sense of wit and sarcasm.

Born February 18, 1956, to James and Helen Law, Dottie attended Conrad High School. She spent her early working career as a bookkeeper for Stanton Pharmacy and later moved to HSBC where she worked as a financial analyst.

The most important job of Dottie’s life was that of wife, mother, grandmother, sister and aunt. She spent countless hours at the beach with her children and grandchildren.  Some of her favorite times were spent with her brother and his wife, Patrick and Renee Law.  In her spare time, Dottie enjoyed giving her family a hard time and keeping them on their toes, people watching, jigsaw puzzles and reading mystery novels.

Dottie is survived by her husband of almost 44 years, Andrew Norris, Sr.; daughter, Dawn Phillips (Doug); sons, Andrew Norris, Jr. (Amanda) & Zachary Norris (Jamie); and her grandchildren, Gabrielle & Dylan Norris, Dominic & Ella Tusi, Nicholas, Jax & Pippa Norris, and Zoey & Lily Norris.  She was preceded in death by her parents; her in-laws, Raymond and Janet Norris; her brother, James F. Law, Jr.; and beloved son, Kenneth Norris.

Family and friends are invited to visit on Monday, December 11, 2023 from 10AM-12PM at the Doherty Funeral Home, 3200 Limestone Rd., Wilmington, DE 19808.
