March 29, 1933 — October 10, 2020


Dorothy A Buchholz, age 87 of Weyauwega, went to her heavenly home on Saturday, October 10, 2020. She was born on March 29, 1933 in the Town of Royalton, daughter of the late John and Blanche (Lambrecht) Genske.

Dorothy enjoyed baking, gardening, traveling and spending time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She was a member of St. Peter Lutheran Church in Weyauwega and was active for many years in their Ladies Aid.
