Dorothy “Dottie” McGorray, age 91, passed away on August 17, 2016 due to complications related to Alzheimer’s disease. She was born on January 28, 1925 in Garrettsville, Ohio. She lived in that area and was employed by M.A. Hanna when she met and married Thomas McGorray in 1952. In 1953, they were transferred to Hibbing, Minnesota. She worked in retail sales at Harbens, Sachs Brothers, and Feldman’s. Dottie was a member of St. Leo’s Church, where she volunteered as a librarian, and she also volunteered at the Hibbing Animal Shelter. In 2013, she moved to Minneapolis to be closer to family. She instilled in her family a love of cooking, dogs, and cross-country skiing. Dottie was preceded in death by her husband, Tom, in 1979, and her faithful canine companion, Nikki, in 2014. She is survived by two daughters, Susan in Gainesville, FL and Kathleen (Steven) Dougherty in Northern Ireland, and one son, Michael (Martha Zemur) in Minneapolis, MN. Dottie is also survived by her special friend, Nick Jerulle. Many, many thanks to the staff at Prairie Lodge Memory Care and North Memorial Palliative Care for helping our mother during her final months and minutes. Funeral will be on Friday, August 26 at 7:00PM with friends and family beginning to gather one hour prior and a reception following at the THOMSON-DOUGHERTY MANSION, 2535 Park Ave. Minneapolis, MN 55404. Private family burial will take place on Saturday, August 27 at Maple Hill/Hibbing Park Cemetery in Hibbing, MN. In lieu of flowers, donations to honor Dottie’s life may be made to the Range Regional Animal Rescue in Hibbing, MN or the Alzheimer’s Association.

On this upload date (June 6, 2015) a year earlier, Dorothy was at her brothers home going ceremony, where she sang a heart-felt tribute to King Jesus, in honor of her brother (Daniel J. Bedford) in Lawton, Oklahoma. …I know we’ve seen the many uploads of Dorothy singing from her hometown of San Antonio -Texas, and all the way to the Middle-East in Jerusalem and to South America in Brazil…leading the hundreds of thousands into the presence of our Mighty God…Now, the Perfect Harmony Network wants to share with you a more, intimate side of Dorothy’s gifts.
To be able to sing in the big lights is an awesome thing…but to have the courage to fight through the agonies and adversities of life and still be faithful and strong enough to trust in God “NO MATTER WHAT” shows just how special a “TRUE” Worship Leader is.
We honor all of the worship leaders who (many times) have a huge smile on their face in public…while having great pain in their hearts…
We also honor Daniel J. Bedford on this day June-6, which was also the same date that Dorothy’s aunt (Pastor Lillian Blackmon of the youtube channel, “Unlocking The Word” went on into glory) There are NO (Zero) coincidences in life! God is in control…this is why we must hold on and keep the faith…and continue to sing…”TAKE ME TO THE KING”

Here we are in Paradise, that’s Tucson, Arizona on a beautiful afternoon at an outdoor cafe. It’s the corner of Church and Congress St and we can see the former Valley Bank Building, site of the 1956 movie “A Kiss Before Dying” starring Robert Wagner and Joanne Woodward. In the movie we see a beautiful panorama of the city more than 50 years ago right before he throws her off the top of the building. With us at the cafe is lovely Dorothy McCutcheon (Dorothy Haas), 1961 graduate of Catalina High School.
Father Robert Miller, aka Father Bob, pastor of Saint Dorothy Catholic Church celebrates the Mass on the tenth anniversary of the ordination to the Sacred Order of Deacons of Leroy Gill, Jr. We praise God for Deacon Leroy Gill, Jr’s ministry and work on the South-side of Chicago.
