On December 18, 1919, in Springfield, Missouri, William and Margrett Rogers were blessed with an angel they called, Dorothy May. The daughter of a full-blooded Choctaw Indian, Dorothy May was raised and educated in Wichita, Kansas. The eldest of three, Dorothy, lovingly called “Dot”, cultivated her responsible, honest, dependable character early in life.
Dorothy May pursued several careers. She was educated and certified as a medical biller. She was also educated and certified as a pharmacy technician. Dorothy worked in both fields for many years. With her helpful nature, she later became a private duty nurse working in the homes of several prominent clients.
Dorothy was a devoted mother of three to Ronald, who preceded her in death, Phillip, and Dewayne.
Dorothy May married her soul mate in 1959, Lloyd Lee Luckey, who preceded her in death.

She was always a leader and over the years, held several offices at South Park Manor, a senior residential building where she resided for over 20 years. She was Vice-President, Treasurer, and a long time board member.
