Dotty is also survived by many nieces and nephews as well as great nieces and nephews, who always called her “Great Aunt Dot”.

To all of her survivors, Dotty says “I Love You”.

Dotty was a graduate of Bishop Kendrick High School.  

Dotty and her predeceased husband John Kapps founded Letterco Inc. 41 years ago. The Company continues to be a successful family business.

In recent years, Dotty and Keith traveled the great U.S.A. in their RV. Dotty loved camping and seeing the wondrous sights our country has to offer.    

Dotty was an avid gardener.   Her beautiful yard was a testament to her passion for a sustainable bounty of fruits, vegetables and flowers.   She loved to bake and cook.

Dotty adored her grandchildren and always came up with special games and ideas for all of them to get together.  She wished her arms were long enough to embrace them all with one big hug.  

One of Dotty’s joys was to keep family traditions alive.   Each Good Friday for the past 45 years was cherished as a Polish tradition of making homemade pierogies; with all hands (big and small) taking part. In more recent years, Dotty and Keith hosted the summer family reunion at their lovely home.

Friends and family are invited to attend Dorothy’s Memorial Service, 11 AM, Monday, October 19, 2020 at Souderton Brethern in Christ Church, 494 Cherry Road, Souderton, PA where the visitation will begin at 9:30 AM.  Interment will be private.  Please remember to wear a mask and follow social distancing guidelines due to Covid-19. 

In lieu of flowers, Dotty requested any contributions be made to Pennridge FISH Food Pantry in Perkasie, PA.
