Dora repeatedly rose to top performer in sales and sales management where she would become vice president at several companies including Rogers American inc, and Anchor Sales and Marketing inc. over her 42 year career, making many long lasting friends and associates along the way.

Some of her favorite activities including anything related to her grandkids, shopping, and decorating her home. She was a classy and sophisticated woman who could always been depended on for help or give encouraging words.
