Dorothy L. Brant

GLENS FALLS, NY — Dorothy L. Brant, 79, began her journey in peace at the end of August 2013. She died unexpectedly in her home from an apparent heart attack.

Born Jan. 19, 1934 in the Walworth County Hospital near Elkhorn, Wis. to Yugoslavian immigrant parents Joseph Brant and Frances Yanda, Dorothy was the youngest of seven children. Her father and uncle owned and operated the Ambrose Bros. Ice and Coal Company in Williams Bay, Wis., where Dorothy graduated from high school in 1951.

Dorothy had a happy childhood and became interested in music at an early age. She was known for her beautiful voice and love of singing, which her sisters and brother shared. In high school, her favorite sports were basketball, baseball and volleyball. She also liked to play tennis, swim, toboggan and ski. She loved the outdoors and water.

In 1956, Dottie married Maynard W. Brant Jr. in Wis. where they had two children whom they raised in Beloit, Wis., Portland, Maine and Ticonderoga, N.Y. while 'Corky' worked for International Paper Company. They divorced in 1972. Corky passed away on Jan. 1, 2007.

While living in Ticonderoga, Dottie was employed at Moses-Ludington Hospital and also worked for William Brennan DDS as a dental assistant. She moved to Glens Falls, N.Y. in 1984 to work at the Adirondack Dental Group. Dottie enjoyed her position and co-workers very much and was sustained by the opportunity to care for many patients and friends, some traveling from Ticonderoga.

Dottie lived at Regency Park North in Glens Falls for 29 years. Intensely private in her retirement, she was content to be surrounded by a small group of trusted friends who supported her through a breast cancer diagnosis and treatment in 2007-2008.

Dottie is survived by a son, Michael W. Brant and wife Teri Davis Brant of West Palm Beach, Fla.; three grandchildren, Travis Brant, Emily Brant and Erica Brant, all currently living in Orlando, Fla.; a daughter, Tracey Brant and husband Ron Cornell of Cortland, N.Y.; a lifelong friend, Mary Ward, who lives in Fla. and with whom she spoke twice daily and enjoyed yearly vacations (especially cruises); and her Glens Falls friends.

A small gathering to remember Dottie was held in Glens Falls in early Sept. She received her final care from the staff of Scott & Barbieri Family Funeral Homes.
