She graduated from Connecticut's Hartford Hospital Nursing School in 1961, the same place where her mother had received her training. At that monumental moment, when her mother put Dorothy's nurse's cap on her for the first time, Dorothy experienced one of the proudest parts of her life.

She traces her early childhood and adolescence growing up in Connecticut and shares how her mother's love and generosity, which influenced her to pursue a career in nursing. After nursing school, Dorothy juggled family responsibilities with her job, yet continued her mother's legacy of lovingly caring for the sick.

She was able to use her deep, abiding faith in God to help families and patients make the difficult transition from life to death. For the past thirty-six years, she has experienced overwhelming fulfillment in a career she was meant to have.

Heartwarming and memorable, In My Mother's Footsteps shares the beauty of one woman's benevolent human spirit.
