Share your Memorial with Family & Friends

Dorothy Jayne (Waring) Krinvic, born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on August 22, 1941, died peacefully at home in Florida with her devoted husband, Freddy, and loving daughters, Jayne and Terry by her side.

Dorothy grew up in Abington, PA and graduated from Abington High School in 1959. She was married to her first and only love, Fred Krinvic for 62 years, and together they raised three children, two cats and the family dog, Brandy in Willow Grove, PA.

As a teenager she went to the original Bandstand, “when it was only a local Philly show” but in her eyes, no one compared to Elvis, who she saw in concert three times. Dottie loved her family, friends, driving her Miata, traveling the world, animals, politics, sports, art, music of all kinds, but most of all she loved sitting outback by her pool making (and drinking!) margaritas with her husband.

Amongst some of her adventures in life, she saw the wonder of the pyramids in Egypt, the Great Wall of China, gazed at the Red Rocks on Airport Hill in Sedona, enjoyed the beach breezes in Hilton Head, and watched many suns set on the Jersey Shore. She was proud of her English and Scottish roots but said if she were to have lived anywhere abroad it would have been Ireland. But Florida is where she, her husband and their rescue cat, Rudy, later built their home, and she loved it. Especially the friends she made while playing Mahjong and catching up on gossip during happy hour at the club.

Dottie was always there to lend an ear, solve a problem or offer sage advice. She was well-read, a great conversationalist and way ahead of her time. Friends and family often described her as loving, kind, friendly and beautiful. A devoted daughter, wife, mother and grandmother. And, she wasn’t just a pretty face, even though she did win a few baby beauty contests back in the 40s, she had a beautiful soul to match. A soul which will be greatly missed.

She is survived by her husband Fred, her daughters Jayne and Terry, a son and his wife Chris Ann, and three grandchildren Jake, William and Cole.
