OCEAN PARK — Dorothy Louise Frizzle, 79, passed away on Friday, Oct. 30, 2015, at Pine Point Center, Scarborough.

Dottie was born on June 29, 1936, in Bridgton, the daughter of Harry and Herberta Gray McKenney. She was a 1954 graduate of Potter Academy in Sebago and a 1959 graduate of Gorham State Teachers College.
