The only daughter in a family of five sons, she attended Dommer Country School and graduated from Vermillion High School in 1945. Dorothy went to Kansas State University and earned her teaching certificate. She was a teacher at the Number 10, Ruest, and Pleasant Valley schools. On her 22nd birthday Dorothy married John A. Stiner at his parent’s farm north of Vermillion. To this union two sons and two daughters were born. After they were married, John and Dorothy lived north of Vermillion until they moved to their longtime home east of Vliets. The couple attended the Vermillion Christian Church. Dorothy truly loved being a farm wife and homemaker. Her dedication to running the home was a true partnership in the couple’s farming business. An excellent cook, she ran her kitchen like clockwork and prided herself on feeding everyone who came over or worked on their farm. Her baking was unparalleled as you know if you were lucky enough to sample it. From her famous buttermilk brownies to fresh glazed doughnuts, Dorothy made baking look easy. A talented seamstress, Dorothy made many beautiful quilts and clothing for herself and her family. She was a gifted gardener who raised and canned fruits and vegetables as well as beautiful perennial flowers. She was preceded in death by her parents; infant son, Steven Merle Stiner; son-in-law, Joseph Dunn, Jr.; and brothers, Bill, Mike, Johnny, Floyd and Dean Bramhall. Survivors include her loving husband John; son, Chris (Judi) Stiner; daughters, Vickie Dunn, Palm Desert, CA and Diane (Jim) Ronnebaum, Home, KS; sister-in-law, Norma Bramhall, Bee, NE; and seven grandchildren who will all miss her dearly. A memorial fund has been established to the Frankfort Community Care Home. Contributions may be sent in care of Padden Funeral Chapel.
