Dorothy L. Lehman, 73, of Prince Frederick died June 24, 2012, at the Burnett- Calvert Hospice House in Prince Frederick.
She was born Nov. 19, 1938, in Beaumont, Texas, to the late Dorothy Ida-Catherine Conway and John Marion Davidson.
She was married to the late John J. Lehman Sr. for 45 years, before his death in August 2002.
She was a Navy wife and mother, keeping a home and raising her three children while moving every few years as duty called. Naples, Italy, was her longest and most favorite of all duty stations; she lived there for five and a half years. Later, she worked in retail for many years, first at W.R. Blair, then Kmart, and later at the Athlete’s Foot, before retiring and helping to care for her grandchildren. She was known as “Nannie” and was full of warm hugs and sweet memories. She always remembered all the accomplishments and forgot the mistakes of her grandchildren. She was always full of proud smiles and loved them with all her heart. As they grew up, she remembered the children they were and cherished the people they became.
She was preceded in death by her daughter, Terri Lee Lehman Demski; and daughter-in-law, Karen Orr Lehman.
She is survived by her daughter, Barbara Ann Lehman of Prince Frederick; son, John James Lehman Jr. of Cudjoe Key, Fla.; grandchildren, Jessica Lee Demski of Lakeland, Fla., Erica Leeann Demski of Gainesville, Fla., Andrew John Musegades of Prince Frederick, Rebecca Lyn Demski of Lakeland, Fla., and Scott Allen Musegades of Prince Frederick; and siblings, Toni Davidson Cacioppo of Slidell, La., James Davidson of Arizona, Catherine Davidson of Coy, Utah, and Robert Davidson of Utah.
A memorial service was held Aug. 28 at Arlington National Cemetery.
