She was born in Gladwin on Nov. 23, 1936 to Daniel and Lillian (Steinkraus) Kranich. She married Elie Tourangeau in 1980 at Houghton Lake and he preceded her in death in August of 1997. Dorothy was a homemaker and in her early years had been a telephone operator in Chicago and her favorite job was with AAA in Detroit working as travel agent. She loved music, playing the piano, old gospel songs, animals and her pets. She was a people person and loved her family. The most important thing is that she loved her Lord and Savior.

She has four grandchildren, Matthew (Julie) Lambert of West Lock, Alberta, Canada, Daniel Lambert of Richards Landing, Ontario, Benjamin Lambert and special friend Trinity of Thessalon, Ontario, and Sarah Lambert of Richards Landing, Ontario and one great grandson, Micah Lambert of West Lock, Alberta. Her surviving siblings are, Beatrice Garver of Marion, Vivian Kranich of McBain and Valerie DeWitt of Mt. Pleasant. She was preceded in death by her parents and a brother in law, Cliff Garver.

Burial will take place next to her husband in Riverside Township Cemetery and due covid 19 and the border restrictions with Canada the actual funeral service will be held at a later date.
