Dorothy Maye (Weinert) Greenwood, 84, a long-time resident of Colorado Springs, CO, joined Jesus and her husband, Warren Greenwood Sr., in heaven on Saturday, Jan. 23, 2016 at Liberty Heights skilled nursing facility in Colorado Springs.

Born on Sept. 25, 1931 in Falls City, Dorothy grew up on a farm outside of town, before moving to the city in her early teens. She was very proud of her Nebraska farm roots. She moved to Topeka, KS, where she met her husband, and they were married in March 1957. She started one of the hardest jobs a person can have – becoming a military wife. Through her husband’s numerous temporary duty assignments, deployments, and change of stations, she always kept the family and household running. In fact, she enjoyed all of the moving and setting up homes in different locations around the U.S. and overseas. Their assignments included Forbes AFB, KS; Carswell AFB, TX; Ramstein AFB, Germany; Bolling AFB, D.C.; Hickam AFB, HI; MacDill AFB, FL; and Peterson AFB, CO, where they decided to retire.

She is survived by her daughter, Cheryl McWhirter; son, Warren Greenwood, Jr.; grandsons, Steven and Daniel Campbell; great grandchildren, Ryan and Zoey Campbell; a sister, Alma Meyer, and sister-in-law, Mary Lee Weinert, both of Falls City.

She was preceded in death by her husband; parents, Carl and Caroline Weinert; and brothers, Leonard and Howard Weinert.

A memorial service was held Jan. 29, 2016 at Swan-Law Funeral Home in Colorado Springs, with the Rev. Paul Weinert, of Falls City, officiating. Burial was at Fort Logan National Cemetery in Denver.
