Dorothy was born on November 5, 1914 in San Pedro, California to Ralph Ernest and Nancy Elvira Fugatt, where she grew up on 2nd Street. She passed away on November 13, 2013 in Westminster having gone peacefully in her sleep. Dorothy graduated from San Pedro High School in 1932, and later married Joseph Van Kralingen in 1945. They had three children; Joseph, Susan and David. They divorced and a few years later she married Bill LeRocker in 1963. Dorothy lived most of her adult life in Torrance and worked for many years until she retired as a Semi-Conductor Inspector for TRW.

She was a Mom and a Grandma who loved her children and grand-children unconditionally, not matter what. We all did some pretty stupid things and she was always there for us. She loved to read, especially romance novels. Dorothy and her sister Gail were quite the shoppers until they could no longer drive. She was preceded in death by her parents, her brother Jack Randall Fugatt, sister, Gail Bernice (Fugatt) Sanchez, and her son David. Dorothy is survived by her children; Joseph Van Kralingen II, and Susan (Russ) Evans; her grandchildren, Tim Van Kralingen, Connie Van Kralingen, Wendy (Evans) Killpack, Jaime Evans, and Michael Evans.

Visitation will be held on Monday, November 25, 2013 from 2:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. followed by funeral service at 3:00 p.m. both at A. M. Gamby Funeral Home, Lomita. The family would especially like to express their gratitude to the Extended Care Hospital of Westminster and thank them for their kindness, compassion and wonderful care of Mom. She will remain “FOREVER IN OUR HEARTS”
