Dottie was born in Wichita, KS, to Earl and Florence (Walton) Kisner.  She went to school in Wichita and graduated high school from Beloit, KS.  After the death of her mother, she found another family in the home of Glen and Mildred Parrish and considered their daughter Linda to be a sister.

Dottie was a loving and devoted mother and grandmother to all she came into contact with.
