Dorothy A. Walther was born February 24, 1905 in Davenport Iowa. She and LeRoy Howard Gruenwald married April 20, 1927 in Davenport. Dorothy died July 26, 1978 in East Moline, Illinois.

Dorothy was a really good artist and fantastic piano player, she could play music by ear, and started lessons at age 5. Aunt Myrtle and Theresa were teenagers and had taken lessons, then Dorothy got on the bench and played everything they played.

Her daughters could hum a tune, then she'd play the full chords. She was fantastic.
