She moved to Floral Park with her husband, John Marshall Outlaw, in 1952. Mother to three children, Dorothy loved reading books, was active as a Cub Scout Den mother and later in life became an accomplished oil painter. Sometime after her husband’s death in 2003, she moved to Garden City, where she much enjoyed gathering with friends at Lord & Taylor for lunch. She was also a big fan of Sweeney’s Uptown Grill, Minado’s Japanese Seafood Buffet in Carle Place and the Jolly Fisherman in Roslyn.
Dorothy was 100 percent Irish and took special pride in her cousins who were New York City Police and fire department members. Her son Wade Outlaw died in 2007. She is survived by her daughter Keddy Ann Outlaw-Johnson, son-in-law Tom Johnson and son Christopher Outlaw, daughter-in-law Judy Outlaw, as well as grandchildren Chris Lee Outlaw, Kate Outlaw, Cody Outlaw and Jesse Outlaw. Dorothy loved to socialize and had many friends at Cherry Valley Apartments in Garden City. She spent the last year of her life in Fredonia, NY, under the care of her family and many kind members of the local hospice team. A memorial mass will be held at St. Anne’s Catholic Church, Garden City on June 8,. Donations in her memory may be sent to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, 262 Danny Thomas Place, Memphis, TN, 38105.

Pitching wins championships, and Garden City baseball Head Coach Rich Smith is confident that his team has enough of it to make a run in 2014. He is not deterred by losing 11 seniors, many of which contributed to the team’s 15-7 season. Smith, in his 42nd year with the program, has seen almost everything on the baseball field, but noted that this team is unique in one way.
“On paper we have three lefties in the starting rotation,” said Smith. “And that’s something I’ve never had here,” he added. The trio of southpaws could prove to be nightmarish on the conference, even after its new alignment.
