Obituaries: Dorothy L. Rick
November 13, 2020
Dorothy L. Rick, 83, of Cromwell passed away Nov. 5, 2020, in the comfort of her home. She was born Nov. 14, 1936, in West Bend, Wisconsin to Otto and Celea (Rady) Ewert.
Dorothy moved to Floodwood in 1978 with her children and then moved to Cromwell, where she retired from the City of Cromwell as the manager of the Cromwell Municipal Liquor Store. Most knew her as "Dot." She loved working, shopping, gardening, and most of all her three grandchildren, Jonny, Jenny, and Abby. Dot was an avid Vikings fan and loved her cat, Putsee. She will be missed dearly.
Dorothy was preceded in death by her parents; three brothers, Ralph, Otto and Karl Ewert; three sisters, Mildred (Jim) Reinke, Pauleen (Delbert) Schmidt and Shirley (Burke) Westen; her son Jeffery Allen Rick; and her daughter Tammy Ann Rick.
She is survived by her son Steve Rick of Cromwell; her three grandchildren, Jonathon, Jenifer, and Abigale Rick of Kansas; her daughter Christina "Tina" Rick (Frank) Davis of Portland, Oregon; and many other dear relatives and close friends.
Special thanks to "Leappi" (Lee Vignes), Phil Smith, and Tammy Pfeffer for all the support and help given. We are forever thankful.
A private family committal of Dorothy's remains will take place in Washington County Memorial Park in the spring of 2021. Due to the spread of Covid-19, there will be no service in Cromwell. Nelson Funeral Care assisted the family with final arrangements.
