Dorothy Rose Vidovich (nee Nemeth), 78, of Lorain, passed away peacefully at Anchor Lodge Nursing Home in Lorain on Monday October 14, 2019.

She was born and raised in Lorain and had been a lifelong resident of Lorain.

Dorothy graduated from Lorain High School in 1959.  She started working right out of high school for the Lorain School System as a payroll clerk.  From there she went to work at Lorain County Community College until she and her boss left to work at the Lorain County Administration building where she retired in 1995.  Dorothy was instrumental in starting the union at the county and served as president.

Dorothy loved to bake, and her happiest accomplishment was when she finally mastered making a big sheet pan of apple pie like her mother used to make.  Her greatest joy was her twin granddaughters who are currently in medical school studying to be physicians.  When she was at the Cleveland Clinic, Dorothy made sure that every doctor and nurse that took care of her knew about her granddaughters and their studies.

She was a member of the former St Vitus Croatian Catholic Church until it’s closing and a current member of St Frances Cabrini Parish.  She was a life member of the American Croatian Club and served at secretary.  She enjoyed camping and going on cruises.

She is survived by her husband of 58 years Charles “Uncle Chuckie” Vidovich, son and daughter-in-law David and Robin Vidovich (nee Nunn) and twin granddaughters Madison and Courtney, all of Pennsylvania; sisters Lois Gorenshek of Hixson, Tennessee and Louann Phelan (Robert) of Amherst; brother David Nemeth (Joan) of Stow, brother-in-law and sister-in-law Steve and Fran Kurjan of Lorain and many nieces, nephews and cousins.  She was preceded in death by her parents Louis and Anna Nemeth (nee Zicarelli), brother-in-law Gordon Gorenshek and niece Lora Trotter.
