Dorothy L. Horn, 96, of Rochester, passed away at 5:50 a.m. on Monday, April 8, 2013, at Hickory Creek of Rochester.

Born on Aug. 14, 1916, in Logansport, Dorothy L. Tobey was the precious daughter of Victor and Lucy Edith (Porter) Tobey.

Growing up, she shared her childhood with her brother Howard. In 1935, with great Hickory pride, she graduated with her class from Talma High School.

On Oct. 17, 1936, Dorothy and Clarence Wilbur Horn were married in Bremen. Together, they enjoyed 36 years of life's adventures, and they raised two wonderful children, Jack and Carolyn. Clarence preceded in death on Nov. 3, 1972. 

For over a half century, Dorothy was a loyal and devoted member of the Church of Christ. She was also a member of the ladies Bible study class. Years earlier, she was active in Newcastle Township's Better Homes Club.

During the years that the family spent on the farm, Dorothy oversaw and maintained a couple of chicken houses, caring for the laying hens, feeding and gathering eggs. Each week, the chickens would produce several cases of eggs.

Dorothy loved children, and after she moved to Rochester in August of 1959, she provided child care from her home, caring for preschoolers and toddlers.

Dorothy is lovingly remembered by her daughter, Carolyn Metzger, of Greenwood; and her son, Jack Horn and wife Helen, of Akron; four grandchildren, Jeffrey J. Horn, Pamela M. McCoy and husband Joseph, Daniel Metzger and wife Heidi and Lisa Reed and husband Dion; 10 great-grandchildren; a sister-in-law, Betty Horn; special friends, Sheri Woods and Helen Cramer; and numerous nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her beloved husband of 36 years, Clarence Wilbur Horn; and a brother, Howard Tobey.

A celebration of the life of Dorothy L. Horn will be at 10 a.m. on Thursday, April 11, 2013, in the Church of Christ, Rochester, with Pastor Jim Dillinger officiating.

Friends may visit with the family from 4-8 p.m. today in Good Family Funeral Home, Rochester, and one hour prior to the service in the church.

Interment will be in the Mentone Cemetery.

Memorials may be made to the Church of Christ.
