Dorothy was born March 21, 1930, at Odin, the daughter of George and Louise (Weidenbach) Cordes. Dorothy was a lifetime rural Amboy resident and graduated from Winnebago High School in 1948. She was married to Vincent Maine on Aug. 14, 1949, in Fairmont. The couple farmed in rural Amboy for many years until Dorothy became a resident of Parker Oaks in December of 2010. She was an active member of Basey United Methodist Church where she played the piano for over 50 years and served as a treasurer of the Basey United Methodist Women.
