All Souls Catholic Church parishioner, Dorothy Von Herbulis Anthony went to be with the Lord on May 7, 2016 at the age of 88. She was visiting her daughter Linda in Texas when she took a fall on April 18 and was unable to recover from it. She had remained very active her entire life and always commented on what a great life she had.

Dottie was born April 6, 1928 in Sorrento, Florida, and lived there until 1944 when her family moved to Sanford to a house on Myrtle Avenue where Dottie's brother Carl Von Herbulis still lives today. She graduated from Seminole High School in 1946 and was proud of the school's nickname at the time, the Celeryfeds, and frequently told stories of the good old days as a graduate of the high school.

She is preceded in death by her parents, Albert O. and Mary E. "McDonald" Von Herbulis, and her husband of 37 years, Robert William Anthony who died in 1989. Dottie met Bob when he was stationed at the Sanford Navy Base. Dottie worked at the Sanford Herald newspaper and Bob wrote an article for the Navy called "Blues in the News." He would drop the article off each week and in 1952 they got married and started their family in Sanford.
