Bridgeport, Michigan

Beloved wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother passed away on Thursday, June 23, 2022 at Bavarian Comfort Care, with her family at her side; at the age of 86 years.

The daughter of the late Roy and Ethel (Smith) Hardy, Dorothy was born on December 18, 1935 in Saginaw, Michigan. She graduated from Saginaw High School. Dorothy married Richard Annear on July 12, 1963 in Saginaw, Michigan; he survives her. They both traveled with their children for many years until returning back to Saginaw. Dorothy worked for many years of loyal and dedicated service until she retired from the Bridgeport Water Department. She was a member of the Saginaw Genealogy Society. Dorothy enjoyed camping, crocheting, knitting, sewing, going to antiques stores and driving. Above all, Dorothy cherished the time spent with her family, especially her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Dorothy will fondly be remembered for her independent personality and her saying, “Be happy until it is time to be sad”.

Surviving besides her husband of nearly 59 years, Richard Annear; are their two daughters, one son and their spouses: Tracey Annear, Carie and Jeff Mount, Keith and Amanda Annear; grandchildren: Richard (MacKenzie) Annear, Kylie Mount, Ryan Mount, Jackson Annear, Liam Annear, Carlee (Jack) Buckley; great-children: Owen Annear, Robert Annear; sister: Catherine (Dan) Moser, Nancy (David) Rusch; sisters-in-law: Judy Wycoff, Sue Annear. Also surviving are many nieces, nephews, extended family members and friends.  

Honoring Dorothy’s wishes, cremation has taken place. A Private Celebration of Dorothy’s Life will take place at a later date.
