Dorothy H (Boyle) Hylwa

January 16, 1948 ~ January 19, 2018 (age 70)

Dorothy lost her long and hard fought battle with cancer on Jan. 19, 2018.  She passed peacefully at home. 

She was born Jan. 16, 1948 to Helen and Richard Boyle in Yonkers, NY.

Dorothy was the food service manager at Kennedy Catholic High School for over 26 years, where she forged lifelong friendships.  Her last 5 years were at Burke Catholic High School.  She was adored by students, faculty and staff.

Dorothy loved helping others. She was an associate of the Sisters of the Divine Compassion and volunteered at the Mustard Seed Migrant Ministry in Goshen since it's inception, and continued for 25 years.  Dot was also a member of their Sunday Prayer Group which she loved.  Dot was an amazing cook and baker, which she enjoyed doing for family and friends.  Entertaining was one of her greatest joys, she would always sing and dance.  Dot loved her oldies, especially the girl groups of the 60's.
She will be sadly missed by all whose life she touched.
Her family would like to thank all that offered their love and support to Dot through her most difficult time. Special thanks for the wonderful support from the faculty and cafeteria at John S. Burke Catholic and Kennedy Catholic longtime friends.
