Dorothy Lohman passed peacefully at Beehive Homes of Great Falls on July 18, 2020, at the age of 95.

She was born in Holyoke, Colorado on August 8, 1924, to Thomas and Edith Hargreaves. The youngest of six girls, Dorothy was active in many school activities including the high school band where she also filled the role of Majorette when the band marched in parades. It was while she was in high school that she met her husband-to-be, Ted Lohman. They dated for two years while Dorothy completed high school, and just weeks after her graduation, she and Ted were married - a very blessed union that lasted just short of 76 years when Ted passed in 2018.

Dorothy was a devoted mother and wife. Family always came first, and she took delight in tending to all of even the smallest details that made a house a home. Love and caring showed through in everything she did. She was a talented seamstress, quilter, and crafter, and she thoroughly enjoyed spending time on her various projects.

She also served as the office manager of Ted’s retail jewelry business in Cody, Wyoming called “It’s About Time.” They continued to live in Cody until 2007, when health concerns necessitated a move to Great Falls to be with family.

Dorothy traveled the long journey into Alzheimer’s disease and entered into residential care at Beehive Homes in June of 2010, where she lived and thrived until her passing. Throughout her journey, Dorothy maintained and shared her sweet, loving spirit with all who entered the door at the Beehive, and she always had a smile for everyone.
