Dorothy Elizabeth Erdie


Dorothy originally hailed from North Jersey. She and her husband, Edward planned for living for a short time in East Greenwich to help an Aunt. But then they forgot to leave. Clarksboro became their home for 60 plus years.
Her baking was top notch, especially her apple and peach pies. Dorothy was a sewer, crafter, artist, and ceramic maker and mostly used her talents for others. When a daughter married Dorothy made the bride’s gown and the wedding party’s dresses.
In her younger years she and her husband were active with the Mantua VFW spending afternoons playing a little pinochle and cheering the races at Garden state track. Recent years have found her enjoying Westerns and old movies with her dog Candy to keep her company. She and her UPS driver were on a first name basis: QVC kept him busy.
A young Dorothy went out on a date with a young guy from their hangout. It didn’t go particularly well but the young man’s brother asked if he could take Dorothy out. The late Edward was the match she’d always looked for. They were blessed with daughters; Phyllis Greco and Patricia Lehman. She was pre deceased by an infant Stephanie. Survivors include 5 grandchildren: Bryan and Stephen Magsam, Robert and Daniel Lehman and her favorite granddaughter, Deanna Greco, 4 great grandchildren, a sister, Maryjane Ebaugh, and dear friends, Dan, Joyce, Domenick, Matthew and Jeannette.
