Dorothy "Dottie" Walker, 82, died peacefully at home Friday afternoon with her family by her side.
Born in New York to Harold and Jeanne Kreinik, she had been a resident of Syracuse since 1961 when her husband Larry accepted a position at Upstate Medical Center. They raised their children here and enjoyed a good life.
Dottie was an art teacher in the Liverpool Schools for over 30 years until retiring in 1995. She loved teaching children to appreciate and create artwork; she touched so many of her student's lives. She was an accomplished potter, and was for many years a part of Clayscapes. Dottie was a past president of the twins and triplets club, and a volunteer with the American Cancer Society. A breast cancer survivor herself, she became a counselor and ambassador to other women who were fighting the same disease that she had conquered.
Her family includes her husband Larry of 60 years, their son Scott; their daughters Carrie (Mark) Sayler; Leslie (Edward) Ashcraft; and Ellen (Jim) Reidy; their grandchildren Courtney, Abigail, Marissa, Brett, Danielle, Brittney, Brandon, Trevor, and Hailey; nieces and nephews; and her grand-dogs Striker, Duncon, Rheya, and Buckley.
