Dorothy A. Fritz, age 85, of Bedford, NH passed away peacefully on February 13, 2018 at Bedford Hills Center. Born and raised in Philadelphia, PA, Dorothy has resided in Bedford since 1998 and previously lived in Ridley Park, PA and Houston, TX.

In addition to her parents, Howard S. Sr. and Katherine (Gillies) Aurelius, she is preceded in death by her husband, Lewis G. Fritz and brother, Howard S.

She was a dedicated wife, mother, Nana, sister, aunt, and friend. Dot's family was paramount in her life. She loved to cook and bake for friends and family both near and far. An animal lover, she found great comfort in her many pets throughout the years. Dot also enjoyed creating many types of arts and crafts, but will be best remembered for her generous heart and love of family and friends.
